You’re never too old to learn something new,
You’re never too old to explore,
You’re never too old to have hopes and dreams,
You’re never too old to want more,
You’re never too old for a challenge,
You’re never too old to complete it,
You’re never too old to achieve your goal,
And then, remarkably, beat it,
You’re never too old to make a difference,
You’re never too old to aim higher,
You’re never too old to change the world,
You’re never too old to inspire,
You’re never too old to share your thoughts,
You’re never too old to give,
But mostly, people must realise …
You’re never too old to live.
This is a tribute to the remarkable Captain Tom Moore.  At the age of 99 he wanted to raise £100 for National Health Service  Charities, by walking 100 lengths of his garden.  This was achieved with the aid of his walking-frame during the UK's coronavirus lock-down in the spring of 2020.  Captain Tom becoming 100 years old on the 30th April 2020.  He absolutely smashed his £100 target by raising more than £28,000,000 and counting.  He also went to go on and sing a duet with Michael Ball of 'You'll Never Walk Alone' which became number one  in the Download Charts.  What an inspirational gentleman he is.
