“My experiences with violence in schools still echo throughout my life but standing to face the problem has helped me in immeasurable ways.

I 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.” Shane Koyczan

Koyczan’s poem has received more than 5 million visits in just eight days, an evidence of the widespread seriousness of the issue of violence in schools.
