This funeral/celebration of life is blowing my mind.
As an avid funeral avoider due to my inability to stifle empathetic sorrow and
genuine emotion, watching Jack Layton's state funeral on TV is simply amazing.
I am not going to go on and on about it b/c really...what can one say.
There is no one like him in politics and it is a tragic loss for this country.
Hearing his children speak of him...gawd.
All the eulogies were touching and so genuine...
I am glad so many people are feeling this loss b/c I hope it sticks
with us all to be better ppl and do things differently...
Steven Page's rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" ~ stellar...
I am going to de-puff my eyes now.
