Still I rise. - Maya Angelou

Despite the let downs of the American Dream, Maya Angelou still sees hope that she does not need the American Dream to rise to greatness.

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.

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.
