Old Age Dignity -Lee Kuan Yew (LKY)

Today (6.2.2013) patriarch LKY went to parliament....His movement is very slow and need to be guided in by a bodyguard. He seems to be slimmer and fragile. Sitting beside Goh Chok Tong and Wong Kan Seng without doing anything but look delirious..

 A once great statesmen, I really feel sad that he just cannot let go and still want to attend parliament. Lately, LKY had not uttered a word even when the Punggol East By-Election was like a battle ground...He looks not well...

With due respect, LKY had done much for S'pore..We definitely want him to retire with dignity, though many of our old senior folks cannot retire with an iota of dignity because of the poverty and destitution of their lives.

 LKY is a 'class' above many elites....Is there a comparison??

But old age dignity is the curse of human reality...In time, we all face the impermanence of life.
The shadow of darkness casts a silhouette of frailness and helplessness in the yonder era of prominence !

We are left with nothingness but the reminiscence of our glorious days......The sad existence of sentient beings....
