Three things we need to remember.

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.

Jack Layton former leader of the New Democratic Party in Canada

Jack Layton said this before his death in 2011. He knew nothing of Covid or the Pandemic that was coming down the road. But his words have real meaning for us now.

      Jack Layton was the leader of the left wing party in Canada. He was very popular and his party formed the official opposition. Sadly he died of cancer and since then the party has not done so well.
