Sir Tom Moore

Peta Credlin certainly lives the life of your average Journo. Jumps up and down about all the injustices, gets on every popular bandwagon that is going around. Swears black and blue she is trying to do something however…. Give her that something to do and she runs the other way. Totally useless she is.
May be an image of 1 person, outdoors and text that says "CAPTAIN SIR Tom MOORE 1920 2021"
In the midst of all the low times last year, here and around the world, Captain Sir Tom Moore was a rare bright light.
Setting out to raise $2000 for the United Kingdom’s National Health Service by shuffling up and down his driveway ahead of his 100th birthday, he instead captured the moment, and went on to raise a phenomenal $AU59 million before being knighted by HM Queen Elizabeth for his fundraising efforts.
Sir Tom generously joined me on Credlin a number of times and each time we spoke, I thought to myself, ’they don’t make them like they used to.’
Perhaps that’s true.
I hope it’s not.
But there’s something really special about our WWII generation; those who wore the uniform, and those of supported them at home. He was my grandparents’ vintage and with his passing overnight from COVID, I think we all can say the world lost someone special but he was a wonderful example of a life well-lived, right to the end.
