The Election Season Is On…

by Patrick Liew on August 30, 2015

As I watch the brickbats thrown at one another from all the different camps, I wonder if our yearlong celebration of SG50 has gone down the drain.

The pride and joy of celebrating the 50th National Day Parade just recently have been nothing but a mirage.

The regular singing of the National Anthem and taking of the Pledge has gone to waste.

I wonder if it is too idealistic and simplistic to ask the following questions.

Why not do our part to unite people and bring forth more happiness and harmony to the people around us?

Why not step up – not shut down? Love – not hate?

Forgive – not begrudge? Heal – not harm?

Unite – not divide? Progress – not regress, and be constructive – not destructive?

Why not pursue peace and help bring about a more peaceful world?

Why not leave the world a better place than when we first step into it?

Let every debate starts and continues on a positive path.

Remember, we stand on the same side to help develop the brightest future for our beloved country.

Majulah Singapura!
