Here's to Jack!

How can a man's death (whom I've only met once) leave such a grievous emptiness in my soul? On the 22nd we toasted your contributions and vision. Lit a candle to represent your hope. Perhaps it's the hope and dreams in me that you resonated with. To have a better Canada, one that I can be proud of again. With ideals of bringing people UP instead of pushing them down.

For whatever reason you have impacted my life, I will miss you and I vow to continue to speak up and speak out, to take action with those who are marginalized, strive together to make your vision, OUR vision of Canada come to fruition. —Re Engaged
