Joe Biden Provides Tearful Speech Remembering His Late Son Beau Biden
Roommate, Joe Biden is only hours away from becoming the next President of the United States, but before he is officially sworn in, he took the time to honor his late son. During a recent speech at the Delaware National Guard headquarters, Joe Biden was overwhelmed with emotion as he shared hearty words about his late son, Beau Biden.
Before leaving for his inauguration ceremonies in Washington, DC, President-elect Joe Biden delivered an emotional speech to his longtime home state and late son, Beau Biden. Joe Biden choked at the Delaware National Guard headquarters in New Castle, named for Beau in 2016 after he died in 2015 at the age of 46.
“It’s kind of emotional for me,” said Biden, wiping the tears from his eyes. “The state that loves our children and grandchildren and loves our beau, and he loved you right back.” It is deeply personal that our next trip to Washington begins here, a place that defines the best of who we are as Americans, ”he continued.
He responded to his son and Beau said:
“I know these are dark times, but there is always light. That is what makes the state so special. That’s what taught me. James Joyce reportedly told a friend that when it is time to die, when he dies he said, “Dublin is written on my heart.” Well – excuse the emotion. When I die, Delaware will be written on my heart. The hearts of all Bidens. We love all of you. You were there for us for better and for worse. You never left So I’m all the more proud to be standing here and doing so from the facility in Major Beau Biden. Ladies and gentlemen, I have only one regret: that he is not here because we should introduce him as President. “
Joe Biden’s inauguration begins January 20, when he and Kamala Harris will finally take office and become the new President and Vice President.
