It is a memorial drawn with colored chalks all over the public space at Nathan Philips Square in front of the Toronto City Hall. Jackman Chiu has captured a beautiful picture that shows the enormous outpouring of love for Jack Layton, who passed away Monday Aug 22, 2011 at the age of 61. He left a letter to Canadians [and I would believe the rest of the world can also benefit from it] for a gentler world of love, hope and optimism.

Come the rain, and the impromptu memorial will be washed away from the concrete. But not from our hearts.
