This tribute has a lot of hidden meaning. Without Mr Lee, we would not even be a SIngaporean. We are proud to be a developed country that is a thriving metropolis. Without Mr Lee, the term ‘Singaporean’ would not exist. It is only under Mr Lee’s strong leadership and courage, that we have have been moulded into what we are today. Mr Lee was a strong, sharp and firm man, He looked ahead of what Singapore would become and was determined to transform and change the country into something even better. We would never be a ‘Singapore’, much less and ‘proud Singaporean’ without Mr Lee.
