Always have a dream that is longer than a lifetime
These words were spoken by Mike Layton at the funeral of his father, Jack Layton.
Jack captured the hearts of a nation when this opposition leader wrote a letter on his deathbed to a country that he loved. But it is a letter that should resonate with everyone from all around the world. It was a statement for living -- for being. It showed a nation that yes, there are still people out there who dedicate their lives to trying to make a change in this world. Jack showed us that when he knew he was dying, he didn’t retreat away from the eyes of the world, but instead his last thoughts were for others.
His last words in the letter 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”
Mike Layton shared these words of his father.
“Always have a dream that is longer than a lifetime,” he said. “Be loving, be hopeful, be optimistic. Together we can build the world of our dreams. And, as he always said, ‘Don’t let anyone tell you it can’t be done.’”
These are not words for a country, or just politics, these are words that speak directly to my heart and the work that we are trying to do through Horses For LIFE.
