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."
The Honourable Jack Layton, NDP Leader
(written to his fellow Canadians on the eve of his death, 08/22/11)
A profound quote by one of the lamentably few who, having achieved political office, managed to remain a decent human being worthy of sincere respect & admiration.
