As we all know, the semicolon not only serves as a punctuation mark, but also has a meaning: it’s not over yet. The implication is that good hope is still there. Recently, an activity called “semicolon project” has become very popular on the Internet. Many people have posted pictures of their “semicolon tattoos” on social media. Do you know what’s behind this trend?
Semicolon tattoo, small insignificant, but represents the hope of life and confidence in continuity. The trend was first launched by Charlee Chandler and Matthew wills, founders of project semicolon, a non-profit aid program. People who participated in the activity spontaneously chose to draw a semicolon on their hands or permanently tattoo a semicolon.
