Yesterday, Nadine Lustre, posted a photo of a semicolon (;) with the hashtag #KeepGoing in her Instagram story. Her boyfriend, James Reid, immediately followed suit. Their friends Bret Jackson, Jack Reid, Lauren Reid, Sam Concepcion, Kiana Valenciano, and many others did the same. The #KeepGoing is currently used to spread awareness on mental health issues for the World Mental Health Day.
The semicolon is a symbol that says the sentence is not yet finished and another clause will follow. In pop culture, it represents hope and love to those who are struggling with depression and mental health problems. According to Project Semicolon, “You are the author and the semicolon is your life.”
Join Nadine, James, and the squad in reaching out to your loved ones who are suffering from mental health problems. #KeepGoing
