Transcript of John McCra
What was his biggest success?
His biggest success was when he wrote one of the most famous poems called In Flanders Field. The reason his Flanders field poem became so famous was because the poem helped other remember the soldiers that we lost during the wars.
What has been the hardest challenge he ever faced?
The most difficult challenge that he have ever had to face was when he was a soldier in war. The reason war was the hardest thing was because he had to leave his family behind trying to convince them that they would see me again. It wasn’t just hard to say goodbye but he also saw people die, one day he would talk to someone and the next day he was barring them. He saw hundreds of dead bodies that will never leave his nightmares.
During John McCrae's past jobs, especially when he was a soldier he learned that life was too valuable to waste. He Learned this by killing and seeing people die in front of him.
What would he think of Canada now?
I think that John McCrae would like today's Canada, the reason I think this is because Canada has good education and he was once a teacher. He would also like that we have good health care in Canada, this would be important to him because he was a medical teacher. Another reason he would like Canada is because anyone could be an author, they can go online and write poems or stories, he would like this because he was a poet.
