演讲稿:

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen,

As a saying goes “There is no place like home ”, my home indeed is such an admiring place: Mummy, daddy and I love each other, care for each other, and we are fully bathed in merriment. To show my love and gratitude for my parents, last summer, with the money I earned as a tutor, I bought them a white-colored microwave oven. Certainly, the miraculous effect of such a high-tech gift will never and ever let us down.

On seeing the technologically advanced product, Mummy could not be more curious and excited. As soon as she kissed me on the head, she began to study the manual carefully. Surprisingly, on the second day, she woke up awkwardly early and began to cook for us. Ladies and gentlemen, my mummy, a lady who had not been cooking for more than 20 years suddenly cooked for her man because of the microwave oven! What a miracle! Definitely, Daddy woke up with a start, and soon smelt and enjoyed the tasty food heart and soul. How thoughtful and innovative the high-tech product is! I’d say, with the guidance of humanism, technology serves us well, liberating us from serious cooking, and also making cooking a delightful experience.  

Humanism as the theme of this era, it directs the technology to follow. Because of humanism, numerous technological products come into being and we have television, laptops mobile phones, etc. Because of humanism, the technology progresses to meet various needs from human being, and our life has been prolonged and life quality has been greatly improved. Compared to the poor conditions of our ancestors in low-technology world, we are indeed quite lucky for human beings’ liberty, happiness, achievement is magnified and highlighted much greatly than ever before.

But do you sometimes feel imposed by the technology when the phone pierces into the wall in the middle of the night, requiring you to finish the endless work by computer? Don’t you have an impulse to say no to the fruits of the technology? We enjoy the convenience of the technology, at the same time , we feel stressful and moreover enslaved.

Technology without guidance is like a disobedient child, which may bring disastrous effect. We must still be haunted by the catastrophic event happened in FUKUSHIMA ,Japan last year. We witnessed people suffered physically or mentally. To reduce the lost and regain human beings’ happiness, a more technologically advanced method was applied later. Though the crisis was over, but the lesson still lingers.

In information age, we do feel fortunate to enjoy the technological stuff. Meanwhile, technology may be a siren which misleads us to reef. As for me, humanism is the theme of this era, humanism is a pillar of society that should never be ignored and diverted. For us, it is high time that humanism should be connected with wisdom, responsibility and morality. Also, we should endeavor to coordinate technology with it in the superhighway. Ladies and gentlemen, the world is flourishing as never before and it is speeding up, are you ready?
