Singapore Belongs To All Of Us.

Singapore Belongs To All Of Us.

I suspect that moving forward, our greatest challenge is not out there but within and among us.

As a small nation, we must never allow ourselves to be polarized and divided because we need our collective strengths and other resources to succeed in the Fourth Wave.

As a people, we must have the self-efficacy to believe we can battle all odds, and have the discipline, determination, tenacity and resilience to turn our dreams into a reality.

Build on our “gotong royong” spirit by pioneering more bottom-up and peer-to-peer initiatives.

Foster more and more helping hands, including non-governmental organizations and volunteers to strengthen the bonds between families and communities.

Help to take care of each other and to look after the last, the least, the lonely, and the lost among us.

Develop a home where we will have a deeper sense of rootedness and belonging.

Continue to believe that it’s in our Little Bright Red Dot that we can find purpose for living, and happiness and fulfillment on individual, family and community levels.

And encourage more partnerships between the public, private and people sectors, and galvanize their key stakeholders to connect, collaborate and co-create solutions for our communities and society.

To create the brightest future, we cannot and should not just rely on the government to lead the way.

The crucial tasks ahead to strengthen our social ecosystem and make Singapore a livable and lovable home have to be carried out by each and every Singaporean.


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.
