This Sunday I will be participating in the Out Of The Darkerness walk held by AFSP in NYC at Battery park.
This walk is to honor loved ones who have passed due to suicide or even to support loved ones suffering from mental illness or battling the thoughts of suicide. Also for those who themselves are fighting the battle. Through this walk funds are raised and used for research aimed at improving our understanding of suicide and ways to prevent it as well as educational programs to increase awareness about prevention, warning signs and the psychiatric illnesses that can lead to suicide.

Nail art is an expression of us, our feelings, thoughts and personality. And so I decided to dedicate my nails to those affected by suicide in any way. This was the message I wrote on my Instagram
“Don’t end you story… I dedicate this set to those affected by suicide and mental illness. Those that have passed like mi lindo (my boyfriend) your story and memory lives on.”
The meaning behind the semicolon is continuing to live. The semicolon is used when a sentence could have been ended but it wasn’t. The sentence is your life and you are the author continue to write. This semicolon motto was introduced by The Semicolon Project, another suicide awareness and mental health organization.
