Here's to the ones keeping us connected

We are in unprecedented times. Now more than ever we are reminded of the importance of connection. New challenges arise every day, but there is work to be done.

The question on everyone’s mind isn’t “how will we stay connected?” because we are connected. That's why we’re thankful for the ones who've worked the past decades installing cables and lines to keep us connected even when we are apart. We are grateful for the high-speed internet connections, Wi-Fi access at every turn and the ability to binge-watch our favorite show any day of the week.

These are services we too frequently take for granted. And today, they are holding us together. Across the globe, many teachers are still teaching, many businesses are still operating, professionals are still providing care and families are still staying connected. Business-as-usual is rather unusual, but we persevere.

Here’s to the ones who made it happen and continue to make it happen. The ones whose boots are in the dirt, sand or snow.

So to the ones keeping us connected, this one’s for you.

Keeping us connected to healthcare providers

Keeping us connected to healthcare providers

Now more than ever, healthcare professionals need to be able to connect with those who need care. A fast, alternative way for this to happen during the pandemic is through tele-medicine. Thank you to the workers who enable patients to consult their healthcare providers from a distance, safely and efficiently.

Keeping us connected to educators

Schools and colleges are closed on a large scale, but that doesn't mean students can't "go to school." Many teachers and professors have rapidly adjusted their curriculum to be accessible online. Thank you to the workers who enable educators and students to stay connected in a virtual classroom.

Keeping us connected to co-workers

Keeping us connected to co-workers

Around the world, many people can't go into the office, but instead, they are working from home and connecting with their co-workers, no matter how far away. Thank you to the workers who have made it possible for global and local companies to carry on their business, no matter how unusual.

Keeping us connected to family and friends

Families, friends and communities are separated globally, but they remain connected through video chats, text messaging, social media and many other avenues available as a result of widespread communication infrastructure. Thank you to the workers who help us stay connected to the ones we care about most.
