A sad morning today. I awoke with a text message from my sister, Erica: "Noooo jack layton died :( :( nooo". It was one of those days that needed to be initiated with something more than a plain old espresso.
I read Jack Layton's final letter to Canadians in sadness and silence, with my cappuccino.
"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."
