1923 - 2015, Remembering LKY.


The passing of a great man. Today, as a nation, we sent off our founding father.

In the last week, people prayed to their Gods, in their languages, for one man. The man who taught us what it felt like to be one, the man who showed us what no other nation has had the privilege to see, racial and religious harmony.

He who taught us in his own ways, like a father would his son. Strict, disciplined love, yet unconditional, selfless, and real. 

I will not be able to comprehend every deed he did, but as the flashback videos are being replayed, the speeches he once made, the dreams he had, and the ideals he stood for, are now deeply entrenched in my heart. 

At the end of the day, he worked for Singapore. All his life he gave. 

When he could have given his family, he gave his dedication to Singapore. 

From 3rd world to 1st world, in one generation. 

1968 was the year It Rained On Our Parade. Today at 12.30pm, the heavens cried while he departed the Parliament House for the last time, symbolising the beginning and end of an era. 

I am blessed, and honoured to have shared a huge historical era with the greatest man in Singapore. There can never be another man like him. 

The love that he had for this nation, his resilient fighting spirit, his fervour, will earn our respect for generations and generations to come.

As I observed a minute of silence together with the rest of my fellow Singaporeans today, I thank you for giving us all that you could have given. I thank you for the visionary that you are, and the foresight you possessed. I thank you for your tough love, standing by what you believed was best for us and not letting popularity and fame blind your decisions. I thank you for a clean and green city. I thank you for an education that rivals even the best systems in the world. I thank you for our world class airline, for without it I would never have seen the world. I thank you for an economy so  unbelievably strong for a nation so small. I thank you for giving us a future, and for giving our future generations a future. I thank you for the time you selflessly gave us when you could have spent it with your family. I thank God for lending you to us, so that it may better our lives in every way.

And now, it is time to return to Him. May you rest in peace. May you find joy in Heaven. May you reunite with the love of your life, and love each other more than you ever did on Earth. 

Thank you, Mr Lee Kuan Yew. 

I am proud to be a Singaporean, because of you.
