Your political philosophy unabashedly prioritised economic development, and became a model of many emerging countries. You dedicated your entire life to Singapore, to the citizens with no reservations. You touched our lives in a profound way. Things has always been taken for granted, if not lightly, by young Singaporean like me. We are fortunate to grow up in prosperity and stability through your hard work. As for me, I am convinced, I would not, being a girl from a poor family with no connections, I would not have been able to go to school, enter a profession and serve in a multinational company. Rest in peace, be assured that we will continue to uphold your values of meritocracy, multi-racialism and non-corruptibility. Staying in cohesive as one people. Last but not least, I am PROUD to be SINGAPOREAN! Thank you Mr. Lee!
