Mr Lee's effort for the nation has been recognised throughout the globe and to the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, a role model. To be praised and admired by someone who is considered to be a great leader, makes the person even special. His efforts has helped Singapore prosper from a fishing village to a trading port for my countries to trade.
I agree with this quote as if not for his far-sightedness, Singapore would not be where it is today. When we go to the tap and clean water comes out, that's his legacy. The clean and green Singapore we have today, that makes it a garden city is his doing. His perseverance and tenacity enabled Singapore to grow and flourish into a economic hub. Without him, Singapore would definitely not be where we are today.
