'Influx of foreigners may have eroded our affection for S'pore, and we no longer have the passion to fly the flag' Voices

WITH less than a week to go before Singapore celebrates 46 years of independence, it saddens me to see very few individuals displaying our flag outside their flats. I'd like to think that Singaporeans are perhaps too busy to make the effort in taking out the flag or they are simply too reserved to openly show their love for Singapore. However, I believe the influx of foreigners over the past few years may have slowly eroded our affection for this country, and Singaporeans no longer have the passion to fly the flag. I urge Singaporeans to publicly show their love for Singapore. While flying the flag is one of many ways to express our love, it is time we make a statement. It is never too late to bring out the flag. Show what it means to be true Singaporeans, who come together and stay united regardless of race, language or religion.
