Last night I saw a symphony of people come together in celebration, wholly unorchestrated. It is proof that with the right reasons and the right conditions, the soul sings.
And perhaps when we put aside the metaphor of Singapore as a corporation and choose instead to see it as a friendly neighbourhood coffeeshop, an agora of colourful exchanges where lives intersect, only then may we be able to get a glimpse of this elusive thing called the human spirit.

Who says Singaporeans have no spirit? Who says Singaporeans are apolitical?
Moments like this makes us proud to be Singaporeans infinitely more than what we experience in National Day Parades etc.If PAP or their supporters cannot understand this, it will only show how disconnected they are now.
