What mean comment from childhood do you remember to this day?
Canadian poet and author Shane Koyczan wrote a poem about bullying called “To This Day,” and it has been adapted into an animated video that has earned nearly 1.5 million views on YouTube. If you love his work, you can sign up to get a free poem from Koyczan every month.
Here’s more from the poet: “My experiences with violence in schools still echo throughout my life but standing to face the problem has helped me in immeasurable ways. Schools and families are in desperate need of proper tools to confront this problem. This piece is a starting point.”
