To this day – by Shane Koyczan

Video

To This Day Project is a project based on a spoken word poem written by Shane Koyczan called “To This Day”, 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.

What about the future we can build, if we put our minds to it!?

RIO+20 is approaching.. and everybody is kind of running around trying to figure out what they will do for the Earth Summit!? Everybody wants to be there, to have a voice.. but very little have happened to create coherence and synergy among all those difference projects and initiatives…

It’s a bit sad that we spend so much time, energy and resources talking about things without having a clear understanding of where exactly we want to go.

Also, have you realized that more and more we spend time after time just talking about all the different problems we face in the world ? (Certainly if you read this blog, I have myself spent quite a considerable time writing considerable amount of posts dedicated to highlighting some of those issues…)

But what if, instead of looking at the darkness that our world is on.. we try to look at the opportunities!? What if we decide to focus our energies and our time to explore the little dots of light!? Those little things that are right, and just need more space to grow and spread…

What if we invest our time and energy in the creation of a collective positive vision for our world?! Can you imagine how powerful this could be!?
