True. Not everyone can be a famous hero. But for one year, with my brothers and sisters in blue, I got a chance to be the hero. Not the kind of hero that gets printed on the headlines of the newspaper, but the kind of hero that the children get excited about.
The kind of hero that gets people wondering what he/she is up to when he/she is running, not flying. The kind of hero that gets to intervene when things take a turn for the worst. The kind of hero that responds no matter what time you call, without regard for personal welfare, well-being, or safety.
No, I may never be a hero for Singapore or the world. But I will remember, that for one year of my life, God blessed me with the chance to be the hero.To counsel children. To defend the defenceless. To play the peacekeeper. To have advise adults. To judge right judgement and exercise moral courage. To be a part of the few thousand heroes wearing the proud blue of the Singapore Police Force.
