Repeating Lana Popham

 A beautiful final message from Jack Layton:

‎"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 PC MP  1950 - 2011

  1. I feel so sad about Jack's passing. I am very sad for Olivia too. They used to make me smile, when I would see a photo of them, walking hand in hand. They were a wonderful couple.

    We will miss Jack. Canada will miss Jack, he loved his country and his people.

  2. Despite the fact that I am very critical of politicians and people in the public spotlight, Layton's final words touch me. I will seek to modify my own blogging approach to ensure fairness, hope, optimism and respect for those who serve the public.

    Following my recent health challenge, I thoroughly understand Layton's suggestion that we cherish every moment with those we love, at every stage of our journey together.
