Today, Singapore has lost a great leader as we see the passing of our founding father, Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. Mr. Lee, Singapore’s first prime minister, passed away peacefully on Monday at the age of 91.
Although I have not met Mr. Lee personally, whatever he had done for the nation had made Singapore who we are today. Without him and his guidance, this little red dot nation may not have made its mark on the world.
His body will lie in state at parliament from Wednesday to Saturday.
