Here’s to a better tomorrow

This being cooling off day and all, I figured I’d wrap up this GE with some final thoughts.

I had no idea that politics is this intense. It’s probably because we feel so strongly about certain issues and the conflict comes when we value some things above others due to our experiences, priorities and world views. But at the heart of it, whichever side we’re rooting for, we all do have one common goal in mind, which is to make Singapore better (whatever better means to us).

And despite the polarizing effect it’s had on Singaporeans in recent days, I dare say it’s a good thing. At least it shows that we care, which is so much better than boring walkovers.

By now, all the parties involved have said what they’ve wanted to say at rallies, opinions have been posted on facebook, lengthy discussions have been made over dinners and we’re all just a little bit sick of having that dead horse flogged yet another time. Besides, I suspect most of us have pretty much made up our minds on where our vote is going.

So instead, I leave you with this.

This is my country

This is my flag

This is my future

This is my life

This is my family

These are my friends

We are Singapore, Singaporeans

    Nice. :)

    While differing opinions and political affiliations may polarize, it is important to also know we’re all in this together! So that post-GE we can all still come together, regardless whether or not the party you’re supporting got all or any of the seats.

    To a better tomorrow! ;)

    We are always Singaporeans first, before race, politics, languages comes into the picture. Come Monday, back to our normal working routine :)

    Thank you for the reminder! :) May it be always about our country, and not about this party vs that!
