Love is Better Than Anger
Hope is Better Than Fear
Optimism is Better Than Despair
Jack Layton of the NDP has died and it's bummed me out: his party is the only one I've ever voted for and the results I saw were incremental, negligible, and at least I reserve the right to complain.
Even if you disagreed with Mr. Layton's politics (treating each other kindly, healing the sick, and saving the world and all) he was quite obviously a good guy in a job that corrupts them fast. He seemed utterly admirable and I therefore admired him greatly.
May Canada see his like again many times in the future. Or we won't have one to speak of.
My deepest sympathy to his family and loved ones.
