But this nation is strong; this nation is fearless.

By A.E.R

I’m scared of empty roads.

I miss the traffic.

This city don’t feel the same.

The rain looks pretty, but it just doesn’t feel the same.

I remember not too long ago, everyone was happy. Smiling faces all around – no one had fear in their eyes. But now after the attack, panic spread. They issued a warning for their next attack.

Security increased, cars on the roads decreased.

But this nation is strong; this nation is fearless.

We the Tigers cannot stand terrorism. We come together as to fight for this nation. With love and passion.

Even though today we are mourning, for the lives lost in the attack, the victims will always be in our hearts. We are strong, we are one. We will overcome this and come back strong.

This is our nation and I refused to accept that one terrorist attack defines us. Pray for us, pray for the world.

Founded by 2 TCKs, the TCK Project aims to bring together TCKs and share our stories. " Many losses are often not acknowledged even by their own parents, and the main problem is unspoken, unrecognized, shunted aside." Through our story sharing, we want to speak of this main problem and cope together. If you're in Singapore, email us!
