Captain Tom’s Heartbreaking Final Words

Sir Captain Tom Moore died in hospital after getting coronavirus and his closing words were “you can do and be anything you want to be”.

The Queen led tributes to him, highlighting “the inspiration he provided for the whole nation and others across the world”.

The army veteran had walked 100 laps of his garden during the first lockdown to raise money for NHS Charities Together.

Sir Captain Tom Moore was knighted by the Queen at a ceremony at Windsor Castle, and a Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said that Her Majesty very much enjoyed meeting Captain Sir Tom Moore and his family at Windsor Castle last year and that her thoughts, and those of the royal family, are with them, recognising the inspiration he provided for the whole nation and others across the world.

In his closing message on Instagram to the world last month, Sir Tom Moore posted an image which read: “You can do and be anything you want to be”.

Alongside the post on social media, Sir Captain Tom’s account read: “Be positive and believe in yourself”.

Prime Minister Boris Jonson also made a statement following Captain Tom’s death. He said: “Captain Sir Tom Moore was a hero in the truest sense of the word”. And he continued that in the darkest days of the Second World War he fought for freedom and in the face of this country’s deepest post-war crisis he united us all, he cheered us all up, and he embodied the triumph of the human spirit.

The Prime Minister said he became not just a national inspiration but a beacon of hope for the world, and that their thoughts were with his daughter Hannah and all his family.

The flag at 10 Downing Street was lowered at half-mast in tribute to Sir Captain Tom Moore, and Labour Party Leader Sir Keir Starmer tweeted that this was incredibly sad news.

Sir Captain Tom Moore put others first at a time of national crisis and was a beacon of hope for millions and Britain has lost a hero.

At the beginning of his plan to raise money, Captain Sir Tom Moore only imagined he would raise £1,000, but he ultimately raised £32,794,701 for the NHS.

The veteran joined the Army at the beginning of World War Two, where he served in India and Myanmar.

This man was a real gentleman and he was one of the golden generations that we won’t see again, and a country full of Captain Sir Tom Moore’s would be a wonderful place, and may he rest in peace.

A statue in Trafalgar Square would be a fitting eulogy to a positively inspirational symbol of British resilience, and he represented everything that was good about Britain.

Perhaps we could even have a new hospital named after him because whether he died COVID related or not, he lived life more than we ever could, and the great work he did in his life is extremely important and should always be remembered.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
