Sixty years ago, Comrade Lee Kuan Yew led a group of nationalists to form the PAP to fight for independence. He and his pioneer generation of party activists rallied the people behind a noble cause: to build a fair and equal society, to deliver a better life for all Singaporeans.
They fought against huge odds. Not many expected them, or Singapore, to succeed. But they were from an extraordinary generation, imbued with strong values and great determination. They set an audacious ideal and pursued it with courage, wisdom and integrity. No obstacle was too daunting for their indomitable spirit; no problem was too intractable for their creative minds. They implemented many out-of-box solutions which have withstood the test of time.
They succeeded brilliantly. A disparate immigrant people bonded, through multiple crises, into one people, one nation. The Singapore passport is now a proud possession.
