Singapore Dreams Tonight!

May 6, 2011

This message appeared as a Facebook note on the eve of Polling Day during Singapore’s General Elections 2011.

Fellow Singaporeans:

Tonight, go to bed early. Dream. Dream big. Dream like you never dreamt before in all your adult life. Dream of everything that can make your heart smile, as vividly as you can, for as long as you need. Dream of all the people you want to see happy actually being happy.

Dream of all five ideals in the five Stars of the Singapore Flag coming true together: Democracy, Peace, Progress, Equality, and Justice. Dream of what you have understood them to mean when you were growing up as a child. Dream simply, but dream grandly.

Tomorrow, when you enter the Polling Station, vote as you have dared to dream tonight.

Your fellow Dreamer,

Gwee Li Sui
