I’ve been waiting for tonight when I will finally get the chance to address my fellow Singaporeans again after 15 long years.
I’ve been invited to speak all over the world but I would trade all those events for the opportunity to address my fellow citizens in a heartbeat. The biggest insult was when they got a foreigner (I was told he was from Israel on a special assignment to the SPF) to prevent me from just getting on stage to greet my own people in my own country.
Come tonight to our Opening Rally at the Choa Chu Kang Stadium. It’s been a long journey but we’re not looking back. The next mile starts tonight. Bring your family, tell all your friends – tell them that I have something important I want to share with them.
