Jack Layton Quote

The following quote, echoing biblical texts, I think, is a living parable of Jack Layton, NDP National Leader. His life was consistent in that he died as he lived. The quote epitomizes it. “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.” [From Jack Layton’s last letter, written to Canadians on his death bed].
