When I first saw and heard this poem, I was deeply touched. Enough that I needed to share it.
As kids, and even grown-ups, many of us experience this kind of thing even “to this day!” When I saw the video below which was the spoken words of the poem written by Shane Koyczan and then Animated, I was in awe.
To This Day Project is a project based on a spoken word poem written by Shane Koyczan 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.
Animators and motion artists brought their unique styles to 20 second segments that will thread into one fluid voice. This collaborative volunteer effort will demonstrate what a community of caring individuals are capable of when they come together. Read more here..
We all know someone, or maybe even ourselves that need to see this. If you care, if you love someone, or if you know someone that this could help and make a difference in their life, please, no matter how young or old, no matter what seems to be their challenge or predicament, please share this with them.
Collectively, we as caring people, and even individually can help make a difference to someone, anyone just like the difference the collaborative effort this poem and video has made since it was put together. Over 5,000,000 million views and hopefully lives have been touched and changed in the last 10 days since this posted.
We ARE the caretakers of this World and its people, and WE CAN make a difference if we try. 🙂
