Do you want to know something? This Inspira issue is excellent. Yes, you have read right. I have written “Excellent”. I don’t say so because it has been written by us, nothing at all like that, but because it talks about people, professionals and organizations working for all of us and most of them are doing it in an altruist way or almost. Because today, I think we can state with no fear to be wrong that research means, in our country, an effort badly or scarcely paid. Nevertheless, and despite public Administrations myopia, there are people who keep on perseverating on this activity that allows gathering the necessary knowledge to advance toward one society more sustainable and healthy. They can see opportunities for working where others just can see activities susceptible to suffer cuts. And they do it enthusiastically and with seriousness, looking ahead, because they are aware of the citizens’ needs.
In my opinion, we need them all, we need to have professionals who don’t give up when finding difficulties and who continue comparing their intuitions with reality, offering objective data that turn into serious information, so that all of us, ordinary citizens, know what we have to do and what we don’t have to, in many areas, but very especially on those matters affecting children’s health. Because health is a right, but it is also a responsibility that we, adults especially, must carry out in order to built a future more supportive, more sustainable and also healthier for our children. This is why I was telling you that Inspira is excellent this month, since it is like opening a small window to some researchers’ , physicians, economists and puppeteers’ work, let alone a tales writer, all of them having a strong commitment with their work and with us. If they don’t give up, we will not, either, don’t you think?
