Wonderful choir performance last night…

…at my kids’ school. Nice music, not too long and a great turnout by the school community. And the kids had a great time too!

The show ended with Raffi’s Letter To A Nation… Jack’s last letter that was turned into song. My brother came to the show with us and remarked that only in Ottawa would you see a concert with this tune as a part of it.

He’s probably right.

Just watch. One of those uber social conservatives will get hold of this and cry that our public school teachers are lefties who are working hard to indoctrinate our young.

But the sane among us do recognise that preaching love and hope to the children of our nation really ain’t a bad thing.

Canada misses ya, Mr. Layton.

Letter To A Nation
(Inspired by Jack Layton)

verse 1
Love letter to a nation,
heartfelt words of comfort & courage,
wanting to be heard

chorus:

“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.”

verse 2
Love letter to a nation,
words of inspiration from a respected elder,
a message to the young

2nd chorus
3rd chorus
My friends.
