Of course he is most famous for being the man that captured the hearts around the world for his valiant work raising almost fifty million dollars. For national health service charities here in the uk the start of the pandemic. You'll remember the footage of him walking around his home. Many many times with zimmer frame and he sort of became i guess a mascot of hope for not just people in the uk but around the world who i think saw him smiling in the face of what was a very scary time especially in those early days when we knew very little about. The pandemic was so incredible. Though is to sit. The tom moore became just not only such an inspiration in the uk but around the world. You know he. The news of his passing is leading broadcast in america. And so think about that right this man. In britain Becomes sort of this inspiration in sensation around the world.
