To This Day

Wow.  This is a moving video.  I’m really grateful that, even though I was never the most popular kid in school, I never had to spend every day in this kind of environment.  My particular school wasn’t nearly so mean spirited, or maybe I was just normal enough or just thick-skinned enough that no one thought I was worth teasing.  But I know so many people who went through this sort of thing.  While I was watching this video, I kept thinking how brave it was for the filmmaker and poet to make this.  This kind of raw sincerity makes you extremely vulnerable, which is doubly impressive considering how deep the wound obviously is already.  It’s inspiring that someone would take a risk like that in order to perfectly express what millions have felt.
