Look Who’s Chalking: Chalk Words For Jack Layton

We found this video compilation of messages written in chalk for Jack Layton, former Canadian NDP Leader. He died of cancer in 2011.

He wanted a better world for everyone, and really cared about making a difference in people’s lives. With Remembrance Day coming up, we thought this was a suitable time to share this and remember all the positive things he did. Regardless of when in history someone makes a significant impact on people’s lives, we think it is important to consider them. Jack Layton fought for human rights and equality. His words and vision will live on through all of us.

In his final letter to Canadians, he wrote:

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.

What words inspire you to create positive change?
