Racial Harmony means that everybody can live smoothly together, no matter what race or religion they are. On 21 July each year, schools in Singapore commemorate Racial Harmony Day (RHD) to mark the anniversary of the 1964 racial riots. On this day, students will reflect on and celebrate Singapore as a harmonious society built on a rich diversity of cultures. Since its inception in 1998, RHD has helped to promote inter-racial understanding among our students and is an important part of our national education.
In my opinion, having racial harmony is very important. It teaches us to respect the other race and religion. We will also learn how to appreciate other race and religion’s culture. In this way, we will learn to live with each other without hate and disagreements. We will also learn to live harmoniously together as one.http://www.moe.gov.sg/media/press/2013/07/racial-harmony-day-celebrations-2013.php
