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).

Is Empathy the Antidote to Bullying?

Is Empathy the Antidote to Bullying? | Olweus | Scoop.it

This idea of empathy is one that will not only have a bearing on our children's school lives, but also on the adults they will grow into being. The culture of bullying extends way beyond teasing in the schoolyard and far into the reaches of how our society operates.

 

Corporations bullying the planet and its resources for profit, politicians bullying citizens for control and dominance, police bullying peaceful protesters out of fear of revolution, countries bullying countries in the form of war. Many people excuse both bullying and this type of destructive systemic geopolitical activity as "human nature," but according to Jeremy Rifkin, author ofThe Empathic Civilization, empathy is our natural state of being.

They started this out with a long code. Good thing they switched to a short code.  They assuredly averted a disaster.
