LOVE

"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 wrote that in his letter to Canadians just before he died four years ago. His words are still true, no matter how the elections have turned out, and no matter how much anger, fear and despair arose during the campaign or in the aftermath. Imagine that, live that, and we'll change the world.
