LKY RIP reflection grace

Mr Lee Kuan Yew was a good leader and did many things for Singapore. He was a good father to the nation. He was an awesome person who made this country for what it is today. 

He believed in a nation that lived harmoniously together like a big family, treating each other not like step mothers or step brothers, but as an important member of the family. He was a visionary that believed in a clean and green Singapore, the garden city. 

These are just some of the things he had done for Singapore

He formed the People's Action Party in 1954, which lead Singapore in the right direction. And these are just some of the things that he did to make Singapore what it is today.

Lee Kuan Yew led the PAP and had transform Singapore's living conditions, from slums to modern HDB flats. He had met the nation’s acute housing shortage. The PAP set up the Housing and Development Board in 1960 and builded 10,000 homes a year. Today, more than 80 per cent of Singaporeans now live in subsidised public flats that they can call their own.

He also made Singapore clean and green. Mr Lee applied the effort to stay clean to the island’s physical transformation as well. From the outset, he was adamant that urban development in the country did not proceed haphazardly. He had seen how a lack of planning had marred other cities, and was determined that Singapore did not make the same mistake. Mr Lee expressed his passion for greening Singapore in practical ways. He planted a tree every year, a tradition he started in 1963. This kicked off an island-wide tree-planting initiative and launched Tree Planting Day, a national campaign that helped Singapore earn its reputation as a Garden City. 

Thank you Mr Lee Kuan Yew for everything. You will be remembered by Singapore. You are greatly missed ;-;
