A friend sent me this over the weekend and I have watched it a number of times now.
Each time I watch my reaction is the same.
It’s powerful, very powerful.
It speaks to me because in part I’ve been there.
I’ve been bullied when I was young for being different.
I’ve known people who don’t feel beautiful or worthy.
Also there was a time when I was young that I was also the bully as much as I hate to admit it.
It is about how something as innocuous as a shared joke between two people can be misconstrued by someone looking in.
The first video is the one created for the To This Day Project.
The second one is a live speaking and is worth watching just for Shane’s intro
The third is an interview with Shane talking about the project.
A warning, have tissue handy when watching.
