Farewell to Dr Goh Keng Swee

Today, Singapore bade a teary farewell to one of our founding fathers, Dr Goh Keng Swee at his state funeral.

Eulogies were delivered by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew, Chairman of Temasek Holdings, Mr Dhanabalan as well as the grandson and grand-niece of the late Dr Goh at the ceremony in the Singapore Convention Hall which commenced at 2.30 pm.

The state ceremony was solemn but fitting to the great man who has made a enduring and significant contribution to Singapore.

Much has been said about the Dr Goh in the past week. Dr Goh has touched every segment of Singapore and made a significant impact on the lives of many.

There is lots of things we have to learn from Dr Goh. For me, the one lesson I learnt from Dr Goh is to be curious in life and lead life to the fullest!

Time is of essence. Everyone has the same 24 hours, but what distinguishes Successful men is the way they use this same resources which is TIME!

In this era, this is a myriad of distraction besetting our youths, things like the internet and the host of IT devices.

Singapore's youths must take a lead and an interest in contributing to Singapore.
