What is the meaning of a semicolon?
The semicolon has become a symbol for affirmation and solidarity against suicide, depression, addiction, and other mental health issues. This symbol became widely used after Amy Bleuel founded Project Semicolon in 2013. Project Semicolon explains that "an author uses a semicolon not to end a sentence, but to continue on. You are the author and the sentence is your life. Choose to keep going." Learn more about Project Semicolon here.
"Now more than ever, we need to find ways to stay connected with our community. No one should feel alone or without the information, support and help they need."
