Capt. Thomas Moore, the World War II veteran who raised $40 million for Britain's health system by walking 100 laps around his garden, is now Sir Thomas Moore, after the Queen knighted him on July 17 for his extreme act of kindness earlier this year. In a small, socially distanced ceremony, the 94-year-old queen honored the 100-year-old veteran for his extraordinary act of goodwill that resounded around the globe. The ceremony also brought the queen out of pandemic seclusion for her first face-to-face meeting with a member of the public since March 19. What began as one man's intent to serve his community by raising a thousand pounds for the NHS, has become an iconic symbol of how everyone has something to offer and everyone can give.
