VIDEO// When Bullying Gives Birth To Beauty

R. >> This morning a friend reached out to me after reading my sister’s post on intimidation and shared this beautiful, breath taking, deep video in which not only did I recognize myself (I was also severely bullied growing up), but I think many people will find themselves in Shane Koyczan’s words.

“To This Day” is a gorgeous short film (7 mins approx) illustrating a spoken word poem about bullying and the people who grow from it. In one word: it’s poignant.

About the artist: Shane L. Koyczan is a Canadian poet and writer. Born in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Koyczan grew up in Penticton, British Columbia. (Source: Wikipedia)
