Words to live by

“My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.” – Jack Layton, 1950-2011.

On Monday Canada lost an amazing politician who believed in a new vision for Canada, who was passionate about what he  believed in and a person who wanted to change the world. NDP Opposition leader, Jack Layton, succumbed to his battle with cancer. Before his death, he penned a goodbye letter to the Canadian public and it is very touching.

Godspeed, Mr. Layton. You will be missed.
