The most Meaningful Lee Kuan Yew Tribute


“He leaves behind a legacy of accomplishments, among them the transformation of a trouble-ridden, ethnically divided city to become a country - all in 50 years - where all of us have space and a common destiny to work towards.”
-Former President, Mr S.R. Nathan 

To me, this is the most meaningful tribute as it makes the most sense. In "leaving behind a legacy of accomplishment",he means that Mr Lee has did a lot for Singapore, all of which could be probably counted as accomplishments, and in "among them the transformation of a trouble-ridden, ethnically divided city to become a country", he means that Singapore back then was divided by races and was trouble-ridden, yet even with all that Mr Lee still persevered and made Singapore into a country. In "all in 50 years", simply means Mr Lee made Singapore into a country in 50 years. Finally, "where all of us have space and a common destiny to work towards" means that all of us have to work together to keep Singapore from falling apart.
