a semicolon is a continuation of a thought, where one could previously ended.
a semicolon is a a symbol that you could have stopped fighting, but you’re still here.
a semicolon is going to unite thousands this week.
last year, the semicolon project was born.
a group of people got together and tweeted out a simple black and white poster, asking anyone who wanted to draw a semicolon on his wrist, to show support.
the responses were overwhelming.
the goal was to have “anyone who self harms, is suicidal, depressed, has anxiety, is unhappy, going through a broken heart, just lost a loved one, etc.” draw a semicolon on her wrist.
one year later, it’s still that simple.
on wednesday, april 16th, draw a semicolon on your wrist.
draw a semicolon.
no flash facebook status, no bright colors:
just a little semicolon on the inside of your wrist.
by drawing a semicolon, you’re proving you are the author of your own life and where your sentence could have ended, you decided to keep going.
you decided to keep writing your story.
i decided to keep writing my own story.
by drawing a semicolon on your wrist, this wednesday, you’re showing support for a community larger than yourself.
you’re showing support to the boy in your language class.
you’re showing support to your boss at work.
you’re showing support for yourself.
take a stand with me and participate in the semicolon project this week.
if you do participate, tweet a picture to @RecoveryBeauty, include #semicolonproject416 and i’ll retweet it.
let’s come together on wednesday.
let’s become a stronger community.
you are beautiful.
you deserve to be the author of your life.
