Almost as if the sky is mourning too
Today (29 March), Singapore came together to witness the State Funeral procession held for the passing of Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. The rain proved to be no deterrence, as variously-coloured umbrellas filled the procession’s route.
Singapore Armed Forces personnel were lined on the side of the route to herald the arrival of the cortège.
Even students stood in the rain waiting for the cortège.
More photos of the procession can be viewed on the Remembering Lee Kuan Yew Facebook page.
