Lee Kuan Yew in ICU
Lee Kuan Yew is fighting pneumonia in SGH ICU. His son put this up on his Facebook page which I like very much.
We must distinguish these folks from leaders and as family and one of us. Responsible leadership test your faith to the limits especially if you do not believe in a higher power.
Another reason why I like this photo is that grand father and grand son is in the centre. Yipeng is his favourite grand kid which must have completely blown away many people's misconception of the man. What a contrast between him as a grandfather and national leader. They could well be two different persons. Like I just said, leadership tests your faith to the limits. Many of his early colleagues believed in a higher power and it really helped, like Dr. Goh and Hon Sui Sen. Thank God Dr. Goh didn't think we could feed the 5,000 like Jesus did but he insisted on religious knowledge in our schools which the much less wise Tony Tan later removed.
I hope he recovers soon. Many are waiting for the news of his successful discharge from SGH. I hope before Yuan Xiao.
