My generation has now seen our first riot.
All of a sudden this sense of peace and safety within our little country is shaken if not shattered completely. What we usually see in videos of a large angry mob smashing vehicles, we see it take place in foreign countries. For the first time we’re seeing it happen in Singapore.
It’s understandable that a lot of people are upset or angry right now, and most of these feelings are being directed to foreign nationals on a whole – in particular, the ones living in Little India. After all, our country had peace for so long.
All of a sudden we have a riot again after 40 years.
