We, the Super Symbols, are not known to be characters of many words (it's just not part of our code). Instead, we prefer to stand quietly and faithfully by the words within your sentences, offering them guidance, functionality, and clarity whenever they need our help. And even though we primarily play a silent and symbolic role within your sentences, we always do so with honor, integrity, and respect.
But on this day, September 24th, we break our silence. On this day, good citizens, we will be heard. For on this day—we revel, we exclaim, and we shout these words to the world—"Today is Punctuation Day!"
And just for fun, here's a Punctuation Day bonus illustration! It features the brave Captain Hijinks, a superhero who is willing to put his very life on the line to show the importance of proper punctuation.
