“Earth, a beautiful planet which floats in the vastness of Space.
There, various people respect one another’s culture,
and walk together towards an unforeseen future.
In Central Southeast Asia where summer never ends, the city of Singapore stands resolute.
Here, people have gathered from many countries and regions,
and have built a beautiful place out of their noble passions.
With old traditions and new technologies, they live with abundant nature and limitless passion.
All I love about Earth is there.
Now it is said that Singapore, and the people of Earth, face an unprecedented crisis.
I want to be of help to you all
so that your people can come together once again,
and so that they can smile once more.
And so that once again this land can be filled with passion and wonder.
Let us overcome this difficulty together,
and move on as one;
Towards a brighter future.”
