Nation in Grief, but Life and Business Normal

The mature nation that Singapore is, notwithstanding the countrywide sadness at the loss of founding father Lee Kuan Yew yesterday, life and business here have generally been normal.

LKY-ribbon FBSingaporeans stand united in expressing their gratitude to the country’s first prime minister for they know what they have today is only because of his visionary, selfless leadership. Even his worst critics cannot take it away from him.

While it is business as usual in the country, Lee Kuan Yew’s contributions are being remembered in multiple ways, including through the electronic service update boards at the train stations, as in the photograph here, as well as in digital signage / video displays and through graphical expressions of grief.
