It has been close to a week of massive outpourings of appreciation and gratitude for our beloved founding father Mr Lee Kuan Yew. The extensive love and respect for him vividly displayed by Singaporeans is evident.
Love. What is that?
Buddies, look, hear and feel all that had happened over the past few days. That is LOVE. A genuine one. Others say we like to complain, but, we certainly know how to LOVE.
- You have made me realise that if you are passionate about a certain thing, you go all out to make sure everything falls in place accordingly. You do not stop till objectives and results are achieved. Love your passion and you won’t have to spend another day in the office.
- You have made me realise that community is universal, and everyone deserves rightful respect, regardless of race, language or religion. Love your community and they will appreciate the work you have constantly put in for them.
- Love you spouse. Love your family. They are your pillars of strength. They will be there for you in times of need. They will be there for you when you are lost. They will be there for you when you are down.
Today, I thank you for my wife and two kids living in a beautiful and secure country. Today, I thank you for a group of running community with the same interest, enjoying their passion. Today, I thank you for showing us what is LOVE.
Appreciate this unique bonding among Singaporeans. Appreciate the chance to show ourselves as one united nation. Appreciate the chance to call ourselves Singaporeans.
Love, so as to achieve happiness, prosperity and progress for our nation.
“At the end of the day, what I cherish most are the human relationships… It is the friendship I made and the close family ties I nurtured that has provided me with that sense of satisfaction at a life well lived, and have made me what I am.” Lee Kuan Yew
