Raymond's letter to The Straits Times: Community spirit worth emulating

My letter to The Straits Times on the above matter is published today, Saturday 9th August 2014 in the MY POINT column.

The photograph and short write-up on how dozens of passengers in Perth, Australia, rescued a man whose leg got stuck between a train carriage and station platform caught my attention (“People power to the rescue”; Thursday).

The passengers did not worry if they would be late for work or their appointments.  They had only one thing on their minds – to save the man.

This is the kind of community spirit and resilience that we should emulate, so that we are well prepared for any crisis.

Raymond Anthony Fernando
