#100DaysofVimy – February 11, 2017

Each Saturday, we’ll share some reflections from our past student participants about the impact of their visit to Vimy Ridge and other sites of the First World War. 

In April 2016, Keaton McLean participated in the Vimy: Canada’s Coming of Age week at Encounters With Canada in Ottawa. Reflecting on his experience, Keaton wrote: “Being at the Vimy: Canada’s Coming of Age week made me realize how privileged I am to live in this country and has made me much more grateful for what the brave men and women did for us all those years ago.”
