It's A Sad Day For Singapore

because of the passing of two of our own today.

Firstly, we receive news that a promising medical student pursuing her studies in London, Cambridge University, has been killed in a hit-and-run accident. Worse still, she was dragged 1.6km down the road after being hit. A young girl of 20, she had a bright future ahead of her, yet she was killed in such a tragic accident. I hope the driver will be convicted and sentenced to a term that's justifiable. (Alleged London hit—and—run driver arrested)

Secondly, Mrs Lee, wife of our Minister Mentor Mr Lee Kuan Yew, passed away peacefully in the evening. She was the pillar of strength behind MM Lee and had stood by him throughout all the difficult periods, especially during the rebuilding of our nation after gaining Independence. Without her wisdom and knowledge in assisting MM Lee, I believe Singapore would not have accomplished what we have today. She was truly a respectable and strong woman. (Wife of Singapore's Lee Kuan Yew dies at 89)

It is indeed a great loss to Singapore, to have received such bad news in just the span of a day. I hope you'll join me in praying for the families of the above two. Thank you.
