On 27/3/2015's night, I went to the Parliament House with my family to pay our last respects for Mr Lee. We started queuing at around 11pm and we got inside the Parliament House at 7am. Yes, we queued for 9 hours but we didn't mind it at all. 9 hours meant nothing if one could spent his life building up a nation. I personally feel that all Singaporeans should pay their respect to Mr Lee because without him, Singapore wouldn't be what it is today. Also, I wanna thank the volunteers, officers and everyone that was helping out with the long queue yesterday. Thank you volunteers and NSmen for giving us fruits, bread and water to help us stay through the night. Thank you officers for making sure everyone had a space to sit and rest. if it wasn't for you guys, I believed there would be so much mess, so thank you all very much!
If it wasn't for his dedication and determination, Singapore would not be the clean and green city that we are now. Thanks to him, we are all living comfortably in a place called HDB flats. He promised the people that he was gonna build HDB and he really did it. He was indeed a man who doesn't go back on his words. He had contributed so much for the country, like being from a third world country to a first world metropolis. I'm also thankful for the trees I see wherever I go in the country.
So from the bottom of my heart, thank you Mr Lee for all you've done for Singapore. You've devoted so much of your life for the country and now it's time for you to rest. So may you rest in peace.
Thank you once again and I'm forever proud to be Singaporean.
