Keep These Words As A Sign Before Your Eyes

Jack Layton, the leader of Canada's Official Opposition - the social democractic New Democratic Party (NDP) - died this morning of cancer. I won't go into his life or his accomplishments or the tragic irony of his death so close on heals of his greatest and historic achievement. You can google that all over the internet.

But I simply must bring to your attention his"Last Letter to Canadians", written on Saturday, when he obviously knew that the end was very near.

It deserves to be read, and read again. You can find it here.

His last words were:
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.
I am tempted to insert them into my "teffilin rosh"
