Last Words

 "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 together we'll change the world."


Jack Layton had fought cancer once already and this summer he stepped down as leader of the NDP to fight it again... he passed away Monday.  
While I may not be a fan of his political party I have great respect for the man he was.  The words I've quoted above are the closing words from a letter he wrote on Saturday, which he had arranged to have released to all Canadians upon his death.  They moved me and remind me of the person I try to be.
RIP "un bon Jack"
Jack Layton
1950-2011
