Remembering Singapore’s Founding Father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew

less than 1 minute read

Mr Lee Kuan Yew is credited to be the founding father of modern-day Singapore, having brought it from a third-world fishing village to becoming the first-world modern city that we now know of. He is credited to be one of the few that has developed Singapore and allowed its citizens to prosper.

Mr Lee Kuan Yew passed away on 23rd of March, 2015 at 3.18am at the Singapore General Hospital due to worsening pneumonia. The Singapore Government has thus declared a national mourning period from 23 March to 29 March 2015 in the mark of respect for him.

I am deeply saddened by the news of his passing, in which I am unable to use words to describe. My condolences goes out to Mr Lee and his family. His contributions to building modern-day Singapore will forever be remembered by Singaporeans, both young and old alike.
