To This Day

Winner of the Individual Championship title in the Canadian National Poetry Slam, Shane Koyczan offers this moving, wrenching, glorious tribute to kids who grew up bullied.  First, with his personalized introduction, then with the Slam, he pins all of us who still feel different with word arrows straight through the heart.  Like David said when he posted this on Lead.Learn.Live., you’ll think you don’t have 12 minutes to spare to listen to this.  Then, you’ll want more.
