Hand in hand with technology

Without a doubt, technology has been a great “tool”, ally of the world, because without it, connection in all areas of the world would be almost impossible. However, there is a very important area, in which it plays a role capable of revolutionizing our lives: the connection between people. Through the Internet, we can shorten distances which, at first, may seem common, commonplace, but it is not. Imagine, without the connection provided by the Internet, how we could talk to friends, relatives, family, with that love that warms our hearts.

You see, I am focusing on the scope of personal feelings, which are the most sensitive part of our lives, the basis that strengthens us, that makes us move forward, because, without feeling connected to our human side, we would be nothing. And, it is fully demonstrated that, without this human side, we would not even exist. At the moment when humanity is being forced to distance, in order to preserve lives and even the economy, without which we would not be able to live, technology is, without any doubt, our greatest and best ally.

Incredible as it may seem, there are people (fortunately in a small number), who disdain this “tool”, so precious. Families, who even at an immense distance, are able to "hug", talk, give that strength to the most sensitive, needy, bring joy and, in the hope that better days will come. Without the great ally, Technology, we would be a world full of loners, there would be a great void, as if we lived in a desert.

The professional side is totally dependent on this great ally, just as you cannot imagine academic life, science, research, and even the arts, disconnected from this wonderful world called technology. Without technology, it means to say, as absurd as it may seem, the world would be impossible. Feelings, such as: longing, love, solidarity, help between people, companies, integration between nations, agribusiness, which brings food to people's tables, would certainly continue to exist, but without this magnificent dimension.

During this pandemic, which is plaguing the planet Earth, students would have to stop in time, as if knowledge had been wiped out of the world. And, without knowledge, progress would stop in time, something unimaginable in my view.

So, today, tomorrow and always, are we going to connect?
