I found my place in God's 'infinite symphony'

My father, a high-school principal, is fluent in Portuguese, German, and English, and has a working knowledge of French, Italian, and Latin. Still, it was not easy for him to learn how to use a computer. He found it a slow process.

But it inspires me that my father didn't let himself be intimidated by the technology "monster." And today, at age 72, he has no problem surfing the Internet. Anyone can embrace technology at any time. Before college, I had no interest in learning about computers. I took a computer course, and there were 40 students in each class with an average of four students on each computer, and that course didn't help much. But when I began my degree in mechanical engineering in 1990, I had to buy a computer to create graphics and technical drawings.
