Last week was a sad week in Singapore. Lee Kuan Yew, the first Prime Minister of Singapore, passed away on Monday (23 March), and the nation is in mourning. +3 and I queued up to pay our respects at the Parliament House on Thursday, after 5 hours of queueing from 10pm to 3am. The state funeral yesterday was a solemn affair. What needed to be said about the man was said.
Today, I am thankful for a man who contributed much to Singapore's success. I've had a good education both in the classroom and while traveling the world. I live in a clean and safe environment and have many opportunities to succeed and thrive.
My life is good, and I am thankful.
