To This Day Project – Shane Koyczan

Shane Koyczan speaks to the core of the issue of bullying.  (Photo credit: John Biehler)

I usually don’t do this, but this poem by Shane Koyczan struck a nerve with me.  Recently I have been dredging up my own demons in writing my latest novel The Painful Best because my protagonist is the result of one event cascading into several other bad events that end up ruining his life.  He is an exploration of what might have happened to me if the right people (and Jesus) didn’t get in the way.

Shane Koyczan has captured the real issue of bullying and what it can do to a person, but more importantly how we can fight it.  Watch this video and think carefully about your past.  What is your story, and how can you find beauty in your life?
