To This Day – Shane Koyczan

To this dayIn February of 2013 Shane Koyczan’s passionate anti-bullying poem To This Day electrified the world. An animated video of the poem went viral, racking up over 12 million hits and inspiring an international movement against bullying in schools. Now this extraordinary poem has been illustrated by thirty artists from around the world. Each page is a vibrant collage of images, colours and words. Born of Shane’s own experiences of being bullied as a child, To This Day expresses the profound and lasting effect of bullying on an individual, while affirming the inner strength that allows people to move beyond the names they’re called.
