January TED

Today’s TED Talk was by the poet Shane Koyczan. He did a reprise of his popular spoken word poem, “To This Day,” which is a moving story about bullying, survival, and what it means to be “different.”

We followed the TED talk with another great piece by Shane, “The Crickets Have Arthritis,” which is about his time spent sharing a hospital room with a dying 9 year old boy, and what it means to take life for granted.
