As we celebrate our 55th National Day, let us remind ourselves of the buzzwords such as fortitude, resilience and unity as we look forward to renew ourselves and encourage others in our daily lives either at home, work or elsewhere as well as how we can better cultivate our relationships to build a better tomorrow.

For the Digest Literature this month, we look at some of the ways individuals, businesses and institutions around the globe are tackling challenges in new environments while overcoming old habits or external challenges to seek solutions through new found attitudes and actions.
