Our Tribute to Mr. Lee Kuan Yew:
I was born in the late 70s from a humble family, and you were our prime minister then. In the 80s, I will often see you on TV, giving speeches that were of no meaning to me then. In primary school, I will sing popular National Day songs with my mouth and throat more than my heart and soul.
Decades had passed and we witnessed the successful transformation of Singapore to a first world country. Undoubtedly, it was a result of the governing principles behind those speeches back then.
Having travelled frequently worldwide in the last ten years, I am extremely proud to be a Singaporean when I am abroad. I am a father now and I will make sure all my children are as proud as me to say, "I am a Singaporean!"
All these are not possible without you and your team giving up so much, to build this place into a beautiful Nation we call home.
Today, we "Stand Up for Singapore" paying tribute to you with utmost admirations.
We sing with our hearts and souls, "We Are Singapore!"
"Count On Me, Singapore!"
Thank you and rest in peace.
Rolf & Family.
