Dazzling display of lights, colours


There was total inclusiveness in this year's National Day Parade, bringing together the disadvantaged and those with hearing disabilities to be part of the nation's celebration.

The use of radiant colours to light up the show was truly magnificent.

I particularly loved the unicorn (left), a symbol of purity and grace that glided so gracefully above the stage.

It was a dazzling display of lights and colours, and a show of bravery from the young boy who rode on the unicorn.

Let us, as people of Singapore, continue to live in peace and harmony, and in our diversity, show love and concern for one another.
