Modern Technology is Wonderful, But In This Case Sad

It’s an amazing time we live in. Instant communication and travel. Disease and medicine allowing humans to live longer than ever. Everyday mundane tasks and complicated endeavors able to be completed in a matter of minutes from remote locations.

If you were stuck in the traffic on the way back from the Red Wings’ NHL Winter Classic game on New Year’s Day in Ann Arbor, Mich., you could just watch the Spartans’ Rose Bowl win on your smart phone. No worries.

For an Iranian woman living in the Upper Peninsula, life wasn’t so easy.

Although the technology of today allowed her family to share her final moments on Earth. The story was reported by The Associated Press and was posted by MSNBC:

“A nurse in a Michigan hospital kissed the patient’s forehead. More than 6,000 miles away, Sanaz Nezami’s family in Iran watched the simple act over a laptop computer and wept. Nezami, a vibrant 27-year-old woman who could speak three languages, wanted to pursue an advanced degree in engineering at Michigan Technological University. Instead, she was brain dead just a few weeks after unpacking her bags, a victim of a fatal beating by her new husband, according to police. Nezami’s time in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula can be marked in days. Her impact, however, will last much longer. Technology allowed family in Iran to watch her final hours and build an emotional bond with nurses whose compassion for a stranger from an unfamiliar culture gave great comfort to shocked, grieving relatives a world away.”

A sad story, with technology at the forefront.
