Ever since I received Joe’s call, I’ve been thinking about the first Biden, that I really came to know – and that of course is Joe’s beloved son Beau. Beau was the kind of guy who inspired people to be a better version of themselves. When I would ask him, “Where’d you get that?” he’d always talk about his dad. The love that they shay shared was incredible, it was the most beautiful display of the love between a father and a son. And Beau talked about how Joe would spend four hours every day riding the rails back and forth from Wilmington to Washington so he could make breakfast for his kids in the morning and make it home in time to tuck them in bed each might. All of this, so two little boys, who had just lost their mom and their sister in a tragic accident, would know that the world was still turning. And that’s how I came to know Joe. He’s someone who’s first response when things get tough is never to think about himself, but to care for everyone else. He’s someone who never asks, “Why is this happening to me?” and instead asks, “What can I do to make life better for you?”
