Really moving video about bullying

This is quite well done. And extremely well written.

From Shane Koyczan, the artist:

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

Schools and families are in desperate need of proper tools to confront this problem. This piece is a starting point.” – Shane

    Wow. Thanks John for posting. “They were wrong” – After 30 years and I don’t know how many hours of counseling – its still hard to grasp and believe that.

    I have always hated bullies.When I was a senior in high school,I went into one of the bathrooms at school and found a couple of the tough guys spreading toothpaste all over a kid who was the poster child for geek. Thick glasses,braces,very shy. He had that nervous little smile that some kids get when they know they are being picked on . To make a long story short, my Dad put me in the service within a few months. That was 1970. One of the bullies went into insurance with his father and did well, the other opened a service station. I havent slept well in 40 years, walk with a cane and am a “loser” . So there it is,the winners and the losers. We learned our lessons. And there in lies the problem, the lessons need to be changed.
