Rest in peace, Mr Lee.

“You begin your journey not knowing where it will take you. You have plans, you have dreams, but every now and again you have to take uncharted roads, face impassable mountains, cross treacherous rivers, be blocked by landslides and earthquakes. That’s the way my life has been.”  --LKY

I write with a heavy heart that the revered (and feared...) founding father of modern Singapore has passed away. Back then, he knew that survival was key and he made sure we did; gave us what we have today: prosperity and stability. He doesn't make the most popular decisions, or even the right ones if there's such a thing, but he tried to make the best of the circumstances. He led a full life and left a great legacy for all of us. Even in his death, he united Singaporeans, which unfortunately, isn't easy. For all that you have done, Mr Lee, thank you. 一路走好 .
