So a couple of days ago, the 16th for be exact. There was a lot images on my tumblr dash of people drawing semi colons on their wrists, so i did some research and found out someone had created a project: The Semicolon Project.
I’m not sure who created it but I love when something is created that brings together strangers from all over the world and in this case to help and be there for each other. To show that you’re not the only one suffering or that has suffered.
The description of the project was:
On April 16th 2013, everyone 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 your wrist.
A semicolon represents a sentence the author could have ended but chose not to. The author is you and the sentence is your life.
Every 16.2 minutes someone will commit suicide. Please be there for your friends and family whether you think they need someone or not. Your presence, your love and your loyalty could save someone’s life.
