Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 20, 2013 8:36 PM

This amazing spoken word poem was written by Shane Koyczan to "to further explore the profound and lasting impact that bullying can have on an individual." The video was brought to life by "animators and motion artists [whom] brought their unique styles to 20 second segments." 

For more information visit the To This Day Project website located at http://tothisdayproject.com/ (and the quoted material above comes form the To This Day Project website). From this site you may also watch the video on Vimeo or listen to it (via SoundCloud).

This film quickly covers the key points to the modern world of cyber bullying. However the point of this film is to go beyond these facts, and asks us to consider an idea. If less time was spent hating, and more time was spent sending positive and love filled messages, wouldn't the world be better off?

Stop Bullying With Empathy

Stop Bullying With Empathy | Bystander Intervention | Scoop.it
Developing empathy allows us to identify our shared humanity. Roots of Empathy was born to draw the curtain on cruelty and build a bridge which connects us to one another, to our shared feelings.

 

The absence of empathy is a common denominator in atrocities at home such as family violence, bullying at school and global atrocities such as the Holocaust, genocide and the marginalization of those who are different in some way. When levels of empathy go up, people are less likely to hurt one another, as they understand how it feels to be hurt. This is exactly what we see in the Roots of Empathy classrooms as children are able to identify with the feelings of the other. Randomized longitudinal research studies show that this aggression and bullying is reduced significantly and remains lower over time. Developing empathy allows us to identify our shared humanity. Roots of Empathy was born to draw the curtain on cruelty and build a bridge which connects us to one another, to our shared feelings.
