Lest We Forget 9/11/2001 – Lessons For Humanity

The painful lessons of 9/11/2001 are not just for somebody out there in the world.

It’s also for the person in the mirror and for every person in our bright red dot.

As we progress as a nation, let’s not allow any views to divide our country and polarize our people.

Let’s talk to and not talk down at one another. Debate over the message but not decimate the messenger.

We may not agree but there’s no need to aggravate one another.

Let our differences help us grow and not put us in a gridlock.

Let’s have unity amidst diversity.

We may be different but that does not mean we cannot be tolerant; divided in our views but we don’t have to be divisive.

We may have uncommon ideologies but we share common ideals for a better life and a better future.

We may not share the same desire but we share the same destiny as a human race.

We may not share the same worldview but we can choose to respect – not retaliate; progress – not regress; be constructive – not destructive; forgive – not begrudge; heal – not harm; and love – not hate.

Together, as one united people, we can help maintain peace and be peace-makers.

We can forgive and forget any wrongdoing and press on to make Singapore an exceptional country and the world, a better home.

Peace and goodwill to one and all.


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