It is with a heavy heart to learn of the passing of one of our founding fathers Mr Lee Kuan Yew. As a former full-time soldier in the Singapore Armed Forces, I was guided not only by the core values of the Army but also by the words of then Prime Minister Mr Lee who in 1966 said:
"For this job, it is the character, the mettle in a person which determines whether the men you lead have that élan, the confidence, the verve which is possible only given dedicated and inspired leadership"
Thank you Mr Lee for all that you have done for our young nation.
May you rest in peace.

It seems to me, that in the past few years, the world has lost a generation of remarkable individuals.
I once read a saying “fear not the rule of a tyrant, for his time will come to pass, and so shall his rule” – anonymous
And for many who see from afar, it may seem the case. But for those of us in Singapore, who are aware of how much of our lives are a result of one mans work, we know that there was no tyrant, there was no wait for a time to pass, there was no unwelcome rule.
What there was, was a man who loved his country and dedicated his life to it like no other.
What there was, was a man who would not let anyone or anything come in the way of progress for his nation.
What there is, is an entire nation of individuals who mourn his passing.
RIP Mr. Lee Kuan Yew[Read More]
