What's the background noise of your classroom?

"To This Day" is a passionate spoken word poem written and read by Shane Koyczan. If you haven't seen it yet, the video brings our attention to the profound and lingering effect of words.Visuals are a collaborative effort, each 20 second segment is animated by a different artist. From Koyczan's website:

This animated piece is the result of a group of individuals coming together and binding their talents in an expression of solidarity and compassion. I am humbled by the extraordinary efforts of those who selflessly gave their time and committed themselves to bring out this message in such a beautiful way.
My experiences with violence in schools still echo throughout my life but standing to face the problem has helped me in immeasurable ways.
