Joe Biden accepted the Democratic nomination for President Thursday night, and he framed the election this way … “I’ll be an ally of the light and not the darkness.”
Biden’s speech was surprising … the conventional wisdom was that he’d let others go after Trump and he’d get more philosophical, but instead he went issue by issue, condemning Trump for a lack of leadership, an obsession with self-interest, and an utter lack of planning.
Biden went through the 4 crises in America — coronavirus, the economy, racial justice and climate change.
Forgetting about who you support, one thing surfaced this week that seems undeniable … Joe Biden is a good, decent man with lots of empathy.
There were lots of testimonials about Biden’s caring and empathy, but there was no greater testimonial than 13-year-old Brayden Harrington, whom Biden befriended after a campaign event where the young man told the former Veep they had something in common — trying to overcome a speech impediment. Biden and Brayden became friends, and the way he described their friendship was maybe the most touching moments of the convention.
