The past 24 hours, Singapore has been a nation in mourning. One can not ignore the magnitude Lee Kuan Yew had on the island nation I now call home. During a tearful address to the nation, PM Lee encouraged the Singaporeans to to honour Mr Lee's spirit, even as they mourn.I am Australian by birth, but my wife, Natasha, and three children only know Singapore as home. Just weeks after Natasha and I started dating, we embarked on our Asian adventure...
