LIVE LOVE LEAD AUTHENTICALLY

Flanders Fields

It’s been 100 years since John McCrae, a doctor and soldier born in Guelph, wrote In Flanders Fields.

Inspired by the death of his comrade a day earlier, he is thought to have composed the piece in the back of an ambulance after a battle in Belgium.

Though he initially discarded his work, another soldier found and published what would become one of Canada’s most iconic poems. 🦋
