The last two days, one sentence have been repeated often enough, in the wake of the death of one of the founding fathers, Othman Wok. That the first generation leaders having sacrificed a lot to make Singapore what it is today.
Their sacrifices often knows no bound. Some even sacrificed their own reputations. And thanks to all these sacrifices, Singapore became what we are today. Now, turn that around, and ask, what has our current leaders sacrificed? Any hardships they went through to get where they are today? What sacrifices did they make? Would Singapore be where we are today without them?
These current leaders, always looking smug, especially when they have nothing good to say about others. Maybe you all should learn a thing or two from the first generation leaders. Too bad that only two of them are left now.
