National Proofreading Day | International Women’s Day

Transcript for March 8th

Welcome to March 8th, 2020 on the National Day Calendar.  Today we celebrate those who love to correct us and those who live to break the mold.  Let’s join Anna Devere after the break.

Let us spot for a moment to… wait… let us… stop. Let us stop for a moment to consider the importance of Proofreading.  On National Proofreading Day we honor those impertinent and learned folks who help us mind our “p’s” and “q’s” by crossing our “t’s” and dotting our “i’s”.  If dangling participles and comma placement are not in your skill set for goodness sake, thank those who don’t mind correcting your homework and make sure you don’t look like an idiom.  Oh, for crying out loud, who wrote this anyway.

Marie Curie, Amelia Earhart, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt.  They say that well behaved women rarely make history, and from where we stand today these women didn’t just make history, they changed the world.  On International Women’s Day, don’t forget to make your own contribution, which is often as simple as being your perfectly imperfect self. It’s important for girls to know that mistakes are part of the process of growing up. And remember that the more joy you choose, the more contribution you make.
