IGY6; Motorcycle Logo - The motorcycle community has your back by bringing awareness to the signs and symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and Stress-Related Illnesses. We will ride until everyone in the community has your back and knows your struggle.
The IGY6 - In essence it means, "I've got your back", "I've got you covered", or "I'm backing you up". These phrases derived from military combat communications in which directions correspond to hours on the clock, where 12 o'clock is forward and 6 o'clock is behind. Anyone behind you is "at your six", hence IGY6 letting someone know that you will be around to help or protect them in any way you can.
The semicolon represents - When writers choses to use the semicolon to end their sentence, it signifies a pause, not a stop or the end of the sentence. It let readers know something else is to follow. The writer is you and the sentence is your life. You are the writer of your life and your problem/illness is just a pause, indicating there is hope and love to those who are struggling with depression, suicide, addiction, and self-injury.
