    RIP.

    Makes u wanna think, "What is the true meaning of being a hero?"
    "Wonders of the Human Mind. Unfathomable to the highest degree."

    Is it just me, or do you guys get the feeling that (young) Singaporeans seemed to be more affected by Steve Irwin's death than Mrs Choy's passing? Perhaps it is simply the suddeness of the former.

    I'm not trying to take anything away from Irwin's contribution, just comparing the reactions to two recent high profile passings.

    Rest in Peace Mrs Elizabeth Choy.

    I dont think its really comparable, to be honest, I dont know who Mrs Elizabeth Choy is, and I loved the croc hunter, would have loved to meet him. Therefore I reacted more to that tragedy then to this.

    it's not surprising in the age of popular culture. and of course, the media will play up whatever would attract more viewership/readership. may Mrs Elizabeth Choy rest in peace and may those who have fond memories of her continue to educate others of the horror of war and of generosity in forgiveness.

    yes, you are right. They are different people with different contributions, I only mentioned them together since their passing are two of the high profiled ones in recent weeks. Not one is any less important than the other.

    My post is not to reprimand those who do not know who Elizabeth Choy was (or what she did). No malice intend.

    I just feel a tinge of regret somehow feel she's lost as an abstract figure in a small paragraph of the history textbooks.

    RIP Mrs Elizabeth Choy. Whom these words were spoken from: " We can forgive but never forget" In relation how we need to treat the lessons of Second World War.

    I do not know her. But I know of her. And her selflessness is something to emulate.

    Death is inevitable, and all death is a "loss".

    But the real loss is not appreciating her spirit of giving herself to others, and applying the same to oneself.

    Well deserved rest, Mrs Choy.
