My great great great uncle's life. And when he went to World War Two.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

That I had a family member that served in the war. And that the men and woman that fought in the war did it for our freedom not just for theirs.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

We don't live the same as the Canadians did in the early 1900s. One of the reasons is we have more freedom in Canada today. Also that we don't have wars.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Well their lives were quite simple despite the wars. But our lives are simple too. We just have a lot more better laws and rules.
