Back in the 1990s — yes, Virginia, there was such a time — I performed a lot of spoken word; mostly at Bukowski’s on the Drive, but also in Slams around town. I was privileged and awed to share the stage on many occasions with a wunderkind, Shane Koyczan, who really was already in a class of his own. I remember crying with pride and joy when Shane performed at the 2010 Olympic opening ceremony: he truly deserved that global exposure.
Now, he has produced another glorious statement, this time in support of the campaign to end bullying:
Bravo to Shane, once again, and the others involved in this important work!
