Captain Tom Moore at 99 raises millions for Health Service , puts celebrities to shame

Captain Tom Moore at 99 raises millions for Health Service , puts celebrities to shame
99 year old Captain Tom Moore raises millions for UKs National Health Service
     
Captain Tom Moore at 99 years old, has shamed whinging celebrities.


Every generation as they age, longs for that period in time that they can call upon, to bring to mind better times.  For some it’s their youth, some it’s their early 20’s and others find solace in their war years, as was the case often with the 2nd world war generation.
 

As a teen in the late ‘70’s and early eighties. I would often hear men (then in their 40’s and 50’s) on building sites,  who would compare what was then modern sex symbols,  such as Madonna in the early ‘80’s,   to past sex symbols like Norma Jean Baker (Mortenson), better know as Marilyn Monroe.
 
Marilyn 1954:  The seven year itch

   
Of course to a teen then, Marilyn Monroe  was someone I had seen in old movies and on occasion maybe in some record shop, where even in the early ‘80’s there were still that famous poster of Marilyn in New York City standing above an outlet, as steam blew up her white dress.
 

My Father would often say:  “There will never be anybody like Bogie again”  and he often lamented about Humphrey Bogart’s  acting ability and his almost legendary appeal.

Bogart  the Telegraph

My Mother on the other hand,  often spoke of the  Great Mario Lanza   as her number one choice of singer (Tenor)  and her favourite actor was Jack Lord  ,  of Hawaii Five-O fame and at one time the Virginian.   

Tenor Mario Lanza
   
 
Jack  (Steve Mc Garrett) Lord

Today in 2020, we seem to have lost some of the magic, coolness, greatness and maybe mystery surrounding celebrities, which actors, singers and comics of previous generations seemed to posses in abundance!.  
 
Even as we are almost worldwide,  collectively under lock down conditions due to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.  
It appears that the first to break under (it seems)  the pressure of Lack of attention, despite their billion dollar bank accounts and outrageously plush homes, is in fact Hollywood’s elite and along with them some of the Music industry elites, collectively termed today as celebrities.
 

As Madonna and others,  of the new enlightened and oh so liberal,  yet tremendously wealthy Woke world.  Act like starved & crazed animals searching for even the smallest morsel of fan recognition.   Even going as far as making total Arses of themselves via YouTube, Twitter and what’s app.

Is this the moment that Madonna realised her vast wealth makes NO difference?  As she rambles on about Coronavirus making us all equal.
 

 

 
On the much brighter side of life

One Gentleman has made them ALL look like pure failing amateurs!.   He is an absolute HERO to millions in the UK and Ireland of all ages and political persuasion.  His name is Captain Tom Moore. 
 
Captain Moore is a second world war veteran,  who is approaching his 100 th birthday very soon.  But despite his advanced age and his hindered ability when it comes to walking,  Captain Moore decided it was a good idea to try to raise funds for the health service in the UK,  by doing 100 circuits of his homes exterior before he reached his 100 th birthday,  and doing so expressly with Thanks and absolute appreciation of the NHS  (UK healths service)  and the brave Doctors and Nurses & associated workers within the NHS currently fighting the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic outbreak.
 

Captain Moore HAS completed fully the 100 circuits of his home and in doing so has not only become loved,  admired  &  respected  by millions in the UK and Ireland.  But he has also managed to raise  (thus far)  £23. million for the National Health Service.
 
In the interview below with RT News, Captain Moore has pledged to continue despite such a wonderful achievement,  Saying:  “As long as people are willing to support me in raising money for the NHS,  I will continue to walk until such time as people lose interest”.




Captain Moore is the kind of Gentleman that this world needs!,   especially at this time.   As the world at least appears to be losing it’s moral compass and almost daily families in the UK,  Ireland,  Europe and most of the world,  go through what is absolutely unimaginable loss,  as they struggle to deal with the loss of loved ones.
 

The last thing they need therefore, is to hear some over entitled,  over privileged and unimaginably wealthy brat celebrity,   drone on about their miserable existence due to being confined to their billion dollar mansions!.
 

I mean after all,  One becomes fed up eventually with having to entertain oneself in such luxury and absolutely near suicidal,   after having to constantly use the same swimming pool time and again!.
 

Thankfully however, there is salvation for those of us who are absolutely jaded by the constant antics and billionaire self pity parties being forced upon us.
 

This salvation comes,   In the form of a great man,  a man of great inspiration,  and of absolute respect,   for the willingness of others to help their fellow man.
 

Now, doing ALL of this might be more than enough for the rest of us mere mortals.  However, Captain Moore is set to take the UK charts by storm!,  as the 99 year old has collaborated with Michael Ball and they have released their recording of  You'll Never Walk Alone.
(YouTube version below:)



 
RTE News  reports:  Captain Tom on track for UK no.1

Captain Tom Moore has described the response to his coronavirus fundraiser as  "rather like being in fairyland"  as he is on course for the number one spot in the UK charts.   His recording of You'll Never Walk Alone with West End star Michael Ball is on track to beat 103-year-old Vera Lynn to the top single spot.
 

However, Captain Tom told Good Morning Britain he was   "rather sorry because she's such a superstar and has been on the top for so long".  He told the ITV programme he saw Vera Lynn sing while he was serving,  adding:  "When I was in Burma, she came down to Burma and I saw her whilst we were out there."  The veteran said the performance  "gave us so much additional heart".  The captain has also received a letter from the wartime songstress,  and while he would not be drawn on what it said,  he said it was   "so kind and thoughtful to send such a lovely note". (Source: RTE News  )

 

There is nothing more to be said,  Except:  Please Stay Safe and care for each other

This man Tom Moore has died at the age of 100 . a fine old age . may he rest in peace
^
Captain Moore's story should serve as an inspiration to us all , what can be achieved when we put our mind to it . "when you walk through a storm hold your head up high , you'll never walk alone" . an inspiration to us all and thank you for a wonderful article.
^
Thanks Charlie,

Imagine at his age, he seems only to be getting his second wind!

A previous video /interview was done by his Great Nephew (I think that's right) who is a Doctor, he was explaining the great Uncle Tom was not only going to do 100 circuits, but the whole family had full confidence that he would easily finish it before his 100th birthday!.

Not only has he finished it, but he intends to carry on!. What an inspiration!!
:o) What a man.
^
yes , a very warming story indeed . its a credit to him at 99 to be so energetic . so many complain about the virus restrictions instead of trying to be helpful and doing something positive like this old man . if we were all like that at his age we'd be doing well
^
I hope I'm as fresh as he is at 99 years of age , what a remarkable man .
^
Mick & Dublin Lad,

I would settle for half of his energy at 70!

Who am I trying to kid, I would settle for half NOW :o)

keep politics out of sport . leitrim hurlers think long hard about this. This is NOT about racism , its about political organisations using the GAA to further a political agenda . this is about manufacturing and promoting the idea that we have a racism problem in Ireland even though there is no research to support that claim and in doing so shutting down any possible debate around peoples genuine concerns around immigration matters in Ireland . please dont allow yourself to be used by the

many of these academics are being funded by the state and eu to create this narrative of a far right in ireland and thus legislate to ban opposing views on that basis

he'll be back alright . at one stage he wanted to give up his algerian nationality presumably so ireland could never be rid of him. the way these people manipulate the system and get away with it is mind boggling

good to see the defence forces behaving responsibly. its important that we dont allow this bullying and name calling of people for having different views. there is an agressive movement within academic circles to alienate ordinary people by labelling them as far right or fascist for simply holding a different point of view to them
