Watch Shane Koyczan’s “To This Day”

A year ago I heard Shane Koyczan’s “To This Day” poem about bullying, and it blew my mind. I didn’t realize until today that the poem was adapted into a video, which I just saw on Upworthy.

Shane’s heartfelt spoken word poem shines light on bullying’s long-term effects. Unfortunately everyone has encountered or has seen bullying happen; I’ve mentioned this numerous times on my blog. Anyone who watches Shane’s video should aim to prevent bullying: tell children about your own stories, heal with other victims, or show this poem and video, which also led to an anti-bullying project called “To This Day.” Shane’s art truly shows the power in words.

Listen or watch his poem. It’s seven minutes long, but it’s so worth it.
