In a desperate plea to my fellow Americans who remain dogged in their devotion to the Second Amendment, please consider the words of someone worthy of respect -- Jesus Christ: "The law was made to serve man, the man was not made to serve the law."

Similarly for Canadians as a whole. Why should we not have audacious and ambitious goals in our lives that challenge us every day and give us reason to get out of bed every morning fully alive and ready to do our best toward meeting the goals?
