Amy Bleuel started Project Semicolon after her father committed suicide to raise awareness and offer hope to others during their darkest times.

Have you ever seen someone with a semicolon tattoo and just assumed that he or she was a writer or wordsmith of some sort? While it's possible that the person you saw was simply a grammar geek, it's likely that the tattoo had a much deeper meaning. Founded in 2013, Project Semicolon was created to support and honor those struggling with suicide, depression, self-injury and addiction.

The Project Semicolon encourages people to share stories about each other, allowing a community of people to support through symbols i.e semicolon tattoos.

Have been planning to get this tattoo since my freshman year of high school. Aside from being my favorite punctuation mark to exist, it has such a beautiful meaning. A semicolon is a symbol dedicated to those who have survived suicide attempts, thoughts, and/or have lived to see friends and family struggle with the idea of living. "A semi colon is used when a sentence could have ended, but it didn't." A suicide survivor's life could have ended, but it didn't.

Last Words - Stay

The semi-colon appears where a sentence could end, but instead it goes on. This is becoming a symbol for suicide prevention. Don't use a period in your life; use a semi-colon. You have more to say, your story isn't finished.

My #recoverytattoo: The semicolon means that I could've ended my story, but I chose not to. The butterfly wings signify freedom---that I am free from my inner demons and that I decided to live :-)
