When I turned the television on last Monday morning a headline ran at the bottom of the screen that read "Jack Layton 1950- 2011." I shut my eyes and opened them again hoping it was a dream. I couldn't breathe for a moment. I had faith that Jack would win the battle, but he didn't. Even though some of us didn't agree with his policies and ideas, there was something about Jack: courage, passion, charisma—he had it all.
