Mr Lee Kuan Yew was passionate as he was the only leader to stand up to the British, to have a separation with Malaya. He made Singapore democratic where everyone could voice out what they wanted to say. He treats the whole of Singapore as a family, not just as step-daughter and step-sons. He had a vision that Singapore will be a Garden City, hence he started it by planting a tree every year, and look at how Singapore is now. He made students learn Chinese, as it would be a universal language soon to come. Without him, Singapore would not be standing at where it is now.
