Article name: Displays of racial harmony
Article link: http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/display-of-racial-harmony

  This article is about more than 2300 people from during ethnic groups, including President Tony Tan, local politicians and foreign diplomats, came into to watched cultural performance at Marina Bay Sands on 12/7. It was the 12th Inter Racial Inter Religious Harmony Nite, that celebrates racial and religious harmony.
  This event is a wonderful event that brings people from different race together and celebrate racial and religious harmony. Racial harmony is something that all of us can be proud of. Our founding father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew, said before, Singapore is not made up of Chinese, Malays, Indians. It consist of everyone. No matter what happened, we should come together, stand together, and survive together. Without Mr Lee, Singapore may not be as equal like today. People of different races may not be wiling to work together as one nation, one Singapore. This shows the importance of racial harmony. If Singapore was separated into many different groups, riots will be everywhere. We should continue to celebrate this important and significant harmony, not only just during racial harmony day, but treasure it, as it is not something that can be built so easily.

  1. I agree with your point pf view. As a small island nation Singapore, we cannot afford any riots or clashes between any of our ethnic groups, as major ones may cause tension within our population and the result may be disastrous. Thus, as Singaporeans, we should play our roles in respecting each other as well as other races from other ethnic groups. Despite the differences, we should all stay united for a better Singapore.
