Semicolons Important Punctuation

Life is beautiful;
semicolons help give pause
to collect one’s breath

Good afternoon. I am sure most of my readers are aware of the two celebrity suicides recently. Did you know June is PTSD awareness month? And September is suicide prevention month. As my family has had to deal with suicides, I learned many family and friends touched by suicide create hope through semicolons; a semicolon shows there is more to a sentence. It does not end prematurely.

The end of November this year, it will be 5 years since my brother-in-law ended his life. Only a year later we lost one of my cousins to suicide – Swallowed Whole. And with extra media coverage on suicides when it happens to a celebrity, suicide rates have been known to increase. So take a breath, pause and reach out; if you feel depressed, find someone to talk to life is beautiful.
