Fast forward to this weekend. I was reading several blogs and I came upon one person's I read quite often. They began to open up about their own experiences in their teenage years and brought up Project Semicolon. It was at this moment, this truly reminded me that everyone has a story. First, I was really shocked, yet happy that this person was able to tell their story and that others would be able to see it for themselves. I cannot speak for others, but I do believe God always has things happen for a reason and purpose; even though we might not always understand right away.
It was at that particular moment I realize part of why God sent this message my way again. You never know what people go through. For someone, Project Semicolon is their saving grace! I appreciate both stories being told. I am going to be transparent for a moment. Again everyone has a story and I am no different. While I have not thought about suicide, I had a family member that did. Although he died before I was before I was born, my grandfather committed the act. Based on various things my family has told me about him, I recognize their was something going on with him and he never got the help he needed. I have also saw some of the effects that it can have on those who were closest to the victim. I do believe that you cannot make a person get help, for you cannot make a person do anything. However, we have the power to influence! That is our greatest tool! I just shared this story with you to help spread the word. People want to feel that they matter and that people care about them. If you know someone who is going through a battle or even if you do not think you know someone who is, please share their website http://projectsemicolon.com. Someone's life can be saved!
