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

The most interesting thing I learned is that life was very different 70 years ago. Schools and home life were different, but family values have remained the same.

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

Important lessons I have learned is that everyone has a story to tell. It is very interesting to listen to their stories and if given the opportunity, help them to tell there stories.

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

Life is a lot different today. They never had electronics like we do today, they went outside and played all day while today we go on our electronic devices.
