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.
