I’m taking a quick break from Reblogging Emma – nearly finished anyway – to make comment on something…
I just saw this article regarding the lady that started the semi colon movement.
She was a Wisconsinite whose influence reached around the world. I personally have at least 4 friends in Australia that received semi colon tattoos due to her movement.
I’m sure the majority of you know of which movement I speak… the one that let people know that a semi colon is used when an author could have ended a sentence, but chose not to. Just as any given person with depression could have ended their life, but chose not to.
Unfortunately, Amy lost her battle with depression at a younger age than I am… it goes to show even leaders of movements and inspirational people can’t always win against all odds.
My condolences go out to her friends and family. I hope that her memory and her voice live on for an exceptionally long time.
