The Semicolon Project

What is the Semicolon Project?

So you know all of those pictures that have been posted on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. of drawings of semicolons on people’s wrists? Well, it’s not just for fun. Behind those semicolon’s stands a deep message.

On April 16 of this year,  it was a widely spread message to people all over the world, to draw a semicolon on their wrist. It was mainly pointed to those who are suicidal, depressed, have anxiety, are unhappy, going through a broken heart, just lost a loved one, etc.

When people are going through these kind of trials in their life, it is easy to just want to throw their lives away, but now we are wanting to come together and let people know that they are not alone.

It is a known fact that every hour, 3 teens harm themselves. Let’s make it a known fact that, someone will always be there for you in your time of need.

Yes, the initial date was April 16, but you are not too late. Everyday, people are dying because they don’t know how to handle these problems on their own. Everyday, we can show them that they ARE NOT on their own.

“The semicolon is used when an author could have ended a sentence, but chose not to. In this case, you are the author, and the sentence is your life.”

    That quote was deep. I haven’t heard or seen anything about this before reading this post, so thanks for posting about it. It’s a very important that does need to be addressed.

      I just wish that these issues were addressed even more, you know? It’s sad to think that everyday people are dying because they think that they are alone, or that no one understands them.
