Captain Sir Tom Moore had an incredible attitude towards his own death.
But Sir Tom, who raised over £32million for the NHS during the pandemic, had an inspiring attitude towards dying.
Captain Sir Tom Moore: His thoughts on dying
In an extract from his book, Tomorrow Will be A Good Day, Sir Tom said: “I’ve never been afraid of talking about dying, and I know I’m going to die so I feel no fear.
“It comes to us all. I have often thought that when I die, I shall once more see all the people I’ve loved who have gone ahead.
“So, even if tomorrow is my last day, if all those I loved are waiting for me, then that tomorrow will be a good day, too.”
“Tomorrow will be a good day”
During some TV interviews, Tom has always said “tomorrow will be a good day”.
He famously said in his book: “Tomorrow will be a good day. Tomorrow you will maybe find everything will be much better than today.
“Even if today was alright; my today was alright and my tomorrow will certainly be better.”
‘Tomorrow will be a good day.’
We can all do with some Monday motivation from Captain Sir Tom ❤️
