“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.”
This project got a very big following and support through the social media as well as musicians and became so much more than just one person honoring a parent. This message of hope and love has reached a big audience in many different countries thanks to this.
Writers, use the semicolon when they don’t want to end a sentence, but want to add more. In Project Semicolon, you are the writer who is choosing to not end, but add more to your life.
This is now a symbol of hope and determination and everyone with a semicolon has a story to tell. These stories are encouraged to be told and shared, while the ultimate goal is to open up a larger dialogue surrounding the issues of mental health.
Not only this, but the project unites people through their experiences and struggles that is not possible to be achieved otherwise.
