Owen Egan

We are the dead. Short days ago / We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, / Loved and were loved, and now we lie / In Flanders Fields. These words are part of the poem "In Flanders Fields" by Dr. John McCrae, which he hastily scribbled in 1915 during World War I. Three years later he died from complications due to pneumonia. McCrae was born and raised in Guelph, Ontario, and was a lecturer in pathology and medicine at McGill. At the Remembrance Day ceremony, run by the Students Society of McGill University in collaboration with McGill Administration, members of the McGill community proceeded from the Roddick Gates to the Arts Building for a short memorial service and two-minute silence.
