"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 July 18, 1950 - August 22, 2011

 - Just 4 months ago, as leader of the New Democratic Party, he became the leader of the opposition after leading his party to a 103 seat showing, nearly doubling the best ever result by this 50 year old party, started by Tommy Douglas, the Father of universal medicare in this country and THE greatest Canadian.
 - Jack was also a staunch supporter of Gay right as a councillor on Toronto's city council and has participated in Gay pride parades for over 20 years.

"He was a friend of mine" - even if he didn't know me.

Thanks for sharing this Sheriff! He sounds like a real leader. I wish I could have known him better.

Watched Dead Poet Society again recently (I have it on DVD) and was completely taken aback by Todd Anderson's poem ...

I close my eyes and this image floats beside me:
A sweaty-toothed madman with a stare that pounds my brain.
His hands reach out and choke me and all the time he's mumbling
Truth like a blanket that always leaves your feet cold.

You push it, stretch it, it'll never be enough.
You kick it, beat at it, it'll never cover any of us.
From the moment we enter crying to the moment we leave dying
It'll just cover your face as you wail & cry & scream.
