  I am very touched after reading this news as now i know there are many kind people in Singapore. I am sure that we are all sad with the passing of Mr Lee and many have gone to the parliament house to pay respects, however with the queue so long, some even have to wait for 8 hours. In this news, it is stated that many kind souls around had offered help to these people queueing, one even said "it wasn't about the money", which i find very true. Kindness need not be repaid,  these people provided food and water so that people queueing will have more energy and feel more comfortable queuing. We have to proactive and help others in any ways possible and aer this incident, I feel that Singapore has become more bonded too. Thus, i feel touched after reading this news.

  1. I agree with you that is was very heartwarming to see Singaporeans helping each other during this unfortunate event. I was queuing to pay respects at the Parliament House, and during the 6 hours wait, I received bottles of mineral water, biscuits, and cardboard fans which were handed out by our fellow Singaporeans. People say Singaporeans are unkind, which proves to be untrue. Singaporeans displayed kindness through this event, and I hope that we will continue to do so in the future, just like how Mr Lee Kuan Yew would want us to be, kind and compassionate.
