As Singapore unites and remembers the formidable Lee Kuan Yew, I have been overcome with the mourning of an entire nation this past week. The emotional messages of condolence, the long queues to pay last respects, the photos of many generations coming together to bid farewell to the founding father of Singapore. There is no doubt that the legacy of Mr. Lee will long be remembered.
There are countless stories and Mr. Lee's life and times is well documented. Like many politicians, Mr. Lee had friends and foes, but the most touching stories I have come across are the anecdotes relating to his wife and soul mate, Madam Kwa Geok Choo.
It is a refreshing change to the controversial and political stories and I encourage you to have a read when you get the chance. It is a poignant story of a relationship that spans six decades and is inspirational in its own right. We can all learn from this example of warmth and devotion as we pay tribute to one of the most memorable leaders of the century.
