This is worth reading the quote made by Captain Tom Moore after finishing his 100 laps and raising 13 million for the NHS.

'It will all be right'
Shortly after he finished the fundraiser, the retired soldier had words of advice for the nation about coping with the coronavirus lockdown.

"You've all got to remember that we will get through it in the end, it will all be right," he said.

"For all those people finding it difficult at the moment, the sun will shine on you again and the clouds will go away.

To see someone like Cpt. Tom do what he is doing is truely inspirational and makes you feel a bit brighter.
The same as seeing the lady who is 106 leaving the hospital after going through CV, some of these older folk are certainly made of strong stuff.

Make sure you feel very humble indeed.

On my return walk from the postbox, someone, obviously a child, had left a rainbow pebble to the "key workers" on the grass verge.  :)

People in my area are being very good also.  Making laundry bags for washing scrubs, face masks, donating hand creams and body lotion and other toiletries. One hospital asked for tea bags, milk and biscuits, energy bars, because they usually bought from the hospital shop which had closed and the nearest shop is too far to pop out to, I think they were inundated  :D
