We won't see another man like him.

He was an extraordinary man


But would he have known...

That after his death, the entire nation would be submerged in deep mourning.

That thousands and thousands would be braving torrential downpours and extreme heats to send him off on his final journey.

That people from all over the world would be commemorating him with images of tributes printed on T-shirts and dominating social media profile pictures. 

Because he holds such an honorable position in the hearts of all Singaporeans .



Lee Kuan Yew was a man with great visions...and with that, he motivated and he inspired many.
His outstanding contributions to Singapore are countless.




First prime minister of Singapore and a socialist politician who transformed the country from a small fishing port



To this vibrant and well governed prosperous city



Around 150,000 people die each day. But how many of them will be still remembered after centuries or even decades after their existence? Only those that changed history.

Not all of us are as intellectual or capable of making life changing contributions like Lee Kuan Yew..
But he left us his legacy of doing good and being kind to others, and with that said, it's not a hard goal to work towards.

Let's face it. I may not end up living half the meaningful life Lee Kuan Yew had or to
 be globally recognized for generations to come after I die.

But for what I do know, l want people to have crossed paths with me in my entire lifetime to remember me as the generous, compassionate person who has lived life to the fullest...

 Just like Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

How about you?:)

Witten with Love,
June

  5. He was literally such an amazing man. Just wow. He basically created Singapore. And June, you're concept is so interesting. That after we die we would want people we've crossed to remember us in a certain way. I've never thought that far ahead.
