This year I, like so many of us, will not be able to attend a Remembrance Service. We will view this, as another negative for 2020, a collective opportunity missed.
Technology is amazing but cannot, as we now know all too well, replace human contact with each other. Yet at the same time, technology can help bring us together across the country, in this extraordinary situation.
Think Captain Sir Tom Moore. Humbly setting out to walk 100 laps of his garden, before his 100th birthday.
BBC coverage and social media has, thankfully helped, with this truly amazing campaign. Captain Sir Tom Moore raised an incredible £38.9 million in aid of NHS charities (including Gift Aid).
Many of us have suffered and will continue to do so, in this current situation. A 2nd national lockdown, heading into Winter as opposed to Summer, is bound to cause further anxiety and hardship.
There are many things we cannot do. Yet there are people we can look to, for solace and inspiration.
I am so humbled to speak about Sir Captain Tom Moore. Born in 1920, a World War 2 veteran and tremendous inspiration, to myself and no doubt the nation.
This Remembrance weekend, do order Sir Captain Moore’s biography, Tomorrow Will be a Better day, attend or watch an online service and donate to the Every Poppy Counts appeal.
Tomorrow Will be a Good Day.
