Joshua Benjamin Jeyaretnam

 
JBJ, a Hero of the People of Singapore and fighter for freedom and democracy, passed away on 30 September 2008.
 
May he rest in peace.  I wish that a day would come when Singapore will honour all its heroes - not just those of the establishment who flew the flag of the ruling party, but also those who love this country and fight for its rights, despite being members of opposing sides.  In our short history, way too many people suffered because they have thought differently and have different ideas, be it rightfully or not, of how this country should be run.
