Joe W. Boyle

My project is about about an under appreciated hero that helped save many lives in the First World War.




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

What I found interesting was that Joe W. Boyle was not selfish that and that he used his share of the gold that he got from the gold rush to help win the war.

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

I learned that its not the size of the person its what that person does. When I learned about my classmates projects I found out that many people did amazing things so that their kids could live or grow up in a better place.

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

Well first of all I would say that I would never leave my children in the hands of my parents like how Joe W. Boyle did and second of all I don't think I could give up a couple million to the war.
