Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

If You See Someone With A Semicolon On Their Body, Here’s What It Really Means

You may have seen these drawings and tattoos of semicolons while on social media.

But these tattoos aren’t a celebration, but instead represent a much deeper symbolism.

Just ask Green Bay, Wisconsin resident, Amy Bluel.

Via Huffington Post:

In 2013, Bluel tragically lost her father to suicide. She wanted to honor her father as well as raise awareness for mental health issues.

So she founded a non-profit organization named Project Semicolon. The goal of the project is to restore hope and confidence in people who are troubled by addiction, depression, self-harm, and suicide.

The non-profit encourages these people to draw or tattoo a semicolon on their wrist.

The semicolon symbolizes that the difficulties they face are not the end but a new beginning.

The symbolism of the semicolon is explained on Project Semicolon’s website,

“A semicolon is used when an author could’ve chosen to end their sentence, but chose not to. The author is you and the sentence is your life.”

By encouraging people to share their marks and stories, Project Semicolon wants to instill hope and open up a dialogue about mental health.

Hopefully this campaign will shed light on an issue that plagues many people around the world, and saves a few lives in the process.
