Recently i have been seeing semicolon tattoos all through my news feed and all over social media which got me to wondering what they are.
After some extensive research, i discovered Project Semicolon.
What is Project Semicolon?
Project Semicolon is a faith based, non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and love to those who are struggling with depression, suicide, addiction and self-injury.
The tattoos and drawings that you see on peoples wrist all over the internet are those of survivors. Those who overcame their demons, battled their addictions, held on and decided to live, and are now making a statement to remind themselves and everyone else around them that they are strong and they survived. That they defied all odds and built up and insane amount of courage to move forward. And that takes a lot of strength and will.
“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.”
