Remembering Lee Kuan Yew (1923 – 2015)

remember-lkyYesterday my family and I queued about 5.5 hours to pay respect to Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. After paying respect I asked my daughter how she felt about the queue and saying goodbye to Mr. Lee. Her answer was she felt tired.

I had to agree. It was a slow, long farewell.

But compared to the slow, long and challenging journey Mr. Lee had to go through to build Singapore, I believe we can do more.
Recently, I heard a quote about Mr. Lee’s leadership.

“Nobody taught him how to build a nation.”

Yes, no one can teach you how to build a nation, especially how to build one like Singapore, from nothing to everything.
And yes, Mr. Lee’s ways may be debatable but his accomplishments speak loudly for the world to hear.

It takes a visionary leader with a great mission to achieve what Mr. Lee had achieved.

To be honest, my sense of loss was little. For I felt pride more than loss.
I feel proud to be called a Singaporean.
I am proud for what Mr. Lee had done.
I am proud and certain that his spirit will continue to prevail in the hearts of fellow Singaporeans.
And on a personal note, I am a little proud of my little girl who queued with us for 5.5hrs. It wasn’t an easy feat for her.

I am also proud of my wife for taking the initiative to do her little bit for this sending.

I read many people say it was worth the long wait. Some queued 7, 8 hours to pay their respect.
To me, it was never about whether it is worth the wait or not. I was just there to do what little I can, paying my most utmost respect, for probably the greatest leader we can have.

Thank you, Mr. Lee Kuan Yew.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
