Taking the Singapore Pledge at 8:22 pm (1222 UTC) on August 9th 2009

Happy National Day! Here’s the pledge which we can recite at 8:22 pm – the time is chosen because that is when the parade reaches it’s conclusion.


We, the citizens of Singapore
pledge ourselves as one united people,
regardless of race, language or religion,
to build a democratic society,
based on justice and equality,
so as to achieve happiness, prosperity and
progress for our nation.

Now, trying twiting that in 140 chars. It contains 38 words and 241 characters.

Here’s my attempt:
