To This Day…
"To This Day" is a poem written by Canadian poet Shane Koyczan to help the fight against the very serious issues of the effects of bullying. Many people believe that bullying is a part of growing up and is a way for young people to help learn to stick up for themselves, but bullying can have long-term physical and psychological consequences that no one should be forced to live with.
This animated piece is the result of a group of individuals coming together and binding their talents in an expression of solidarity and compassion.
Shanes experiences with violence in schools still echo throughout his life but standing to face the problem has helped him in immeasurable ways.
Shane 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. - Copyright © 2013 Shane Koyczan
