    A journey filled...does this read right?

    A journey filled with unprecedented progress and a sense of pride; we have evolved at each step. And will continue to...

    is this grammatically right?

    Thanks in advance

    Re: A journey filled...does this read right?

    No. The first phrase lacks a verb, so cannot be followed by a semicolon.

    There should be no full stop after 'step'.

    How does the sentence end?

    A journey filled with unprecedented progress and a sense of pride.

    If this was the only sentence (without the -
    we have evolved at each step). Isn't filled the verb?

    No. It's the past participle used adjectivally.

    You could say 'Our journey was filled with unprecendented progress....'
