A colleague shared with us this incredible video about bullying, written by Shane Koyczan, a spoken word poet and writer. It’s incredibly beautiful. Please take the time to watch this video and reflect on how we can stop bullying.
Shane said this about this video and poem:
“This animated piece is the result of a group of individuals coming together and binding their talents in an expression of solidarity and compassion. I am humbled by the extraordinary efforts of those who selflessly gave their time and committed themselves to bring out this message in such a beautiful way. My experiences with violence in schools still echo throughout my life but standing to face the problem has helped me in immeasurable ways. I wrote “To This Day”, a spoken word poem, to further explore the profound and lasting impact that bullying can have on an individual. Schools and families are in desperate need of proper tools to confront this problem. We can give them a starting point… A message that will have a far reaching and long lasting effect in confronting bullying. “
