The Semicolon Project

Dear reader,

My daughter, Victoria (13) is an avid activist even if she is not aware of it as yet. I have watched her take on issues and raise awareness on the platforms available to her – somehow reminding me of Eva Peron as I always tease Victoria about her the way she wears her hair. 🙂 She speaks out over many issues that touches her with confidence and conviction. Be it in a school environment (where she has only just started High School), in a social media setting and in personal interaction.

Over the weekend she spoke to me about the semicolon project. I could certainly identify with her words and once I googled it, I wish today I had the means to go and ink a semicolon on my wrist because it indeed sums up so many days and experience in my life… and in hers.

So today, please be aware and encourage one another. You may not know the road the person next to you  is travelling.

On April 16th anyone who struggles with self harm, is suicidal, is depressed, has anxiety, is unhappy, going through a broken heart, 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.


Thank you Chicken. Mom loves you so very much.

I wish you enough,
