Quote of the Day

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

Thank you for posting that, Michael.

I've never seen a country mourn a death in quite the way Canadians are mourning the death of Jack Layton, but I can understand it, too, because he was a great man and a determined advocate for justice and peace.
