R.I.P. Mr. Lee Kuan Yew, 1st Prime Minister and founding father. It’s the end of an era for a country as young as ours.
I don’t think I’ve ever thought about the national anthem while singing it 200 times a year (of which I actually sing- 0. I observe.) Today was a first. We’ve been talking about our 50th year of independence since our 47th… this year will be an epic celebration in his honour.
Him in that last pic -us ejected from Malaysia in 1965- teared for the uncertain future. Iconic how Singapore achieved developed status in just one generation. The true spirit of LKY- never say die.
I feel unnaturally, uncomfortably patriotic (tho it won’t last).
