PhotoHunt theme : Square

"A man who is good enough to shed his blood for his country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards. More than that no man is entitled, and less than that no man shall have." 
Teddy Roosevelt

Most Crucial Election in Singapore History

2011 Singapore General Elections promises to be fascinating. More than 2.2 million voters will get to vote on May 7 after many walkovers in previous elections.

Most importantly, Singaporeans will see many more close electoral contests between the PAP and the opposition especially in several GRCs, namely Aljunied, Bishan-Toa Payoh and Moulmein-Kallang.

Workers' Party (WP) chief Low Thia Khiang, chairman Sylvia Lim, corporate lawyer Chen Show Mao, Mr Pritam Singh, a postgraduate law student, and Mr Muhamad Faisal Manap, a freelance counsellor form the WP's Super A team to take on the PAP team in Aljunied GRC.

I salute these Singaporeans for their bravery and indomitable spirit. As opposition members, they face worse obstacles and problems, some seem insurmountable. But no matter how tough, talented or big their opponents are, they refuse to be beaten or give in.

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows,in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.

I wish them all the best.
