We are the generation that has been fed stories of your bravery and your fearlessness in leading Singapore forward when we were orphaned. We’ve been raised on that picture of you crying on 8 August 1965. In entrepreneur speak, you pivoted when the situation demanded it. You did not shirk from responsibility and in a region that was thrown asunder by corruption, politics and power, you made some hard decisions. If any of this was for personal glory, it was hidden very well indeed.

Two years since I wrote so passionately. Time to unearth that spark!

Bon anniversarie!
