And so it's a it's basically a message of education for people who love those are deep stress a message of hope of finding purpose and it's available stay alive video dot com by the way on online if you choose to But the the song as i say rako came up with this beautiful music about finding a a reason to live and we use the metaphor of a semi colon which is the symbol of those who have been touched or challenged by suicide in their lives or for themselves or with others and so we use that as kind of the starting for the metaphor and build from there and say created a song that we hope is inspirational and also used in the documentary film.
