Britain mourns pandemic 'hero' Captain Tom Moore

Captain Tom Moore, who raised millions for healthcare workers and offered a message of hope and self-sacrifice during the lockdown, died after suffering pneumonia and COVID-19. The British World War veteran, who was 100, struck a chord with locked-down Britain by walking around his garden with the help of a frame to raise 38.9 million pounds ($53 million). Moore's message to the world was that the sun would shine again and that the clouds would clear.
