Safety 
No need to glance back 
We can saunter with friends
Laugh, love, chat
Even when the sun has long set.

Beauty
Greens that give shade 
Blooming bougainvillea
Easing the eyes
Coloring the journey

Efficiency
The city works
The city works
Decisions made 
Carried out.

Integrity
A word is a word
The agenda is as written
No hidden ones in hearts
No whispers
The sum is as stated
No hidden extras.  

Equality
You can if you can
Ideas valued for what they are
Not for where they come from

Order
The voice of the community
Guided by agreed principles
Not arbitrary wishes of the few.

Stability
That we may plan
Way ahead
For our children
And our children’s children

Freedom
To worship
To hear creeds
To admire
To disagree
To choose a new creed


I am thankful for
Singapore. 

“I urge that .. thanksgivings be made for all people (nation), for kings and all who are in high positions…”  1 Timothy 2:1
