"There will come a day, I promise you, and your parents as well, when the thought of your son or daughter or your husband or wife brings a smile to your lips before it brings a tear to your eye. It will happen," he said. "My prayer for you is that day will come sooner or later. But the only thing I have more experience than you in is this: I'm telling you it will come."

I saw this clip on the news and was touched by his sympathy and empathy. Often, I think Mr. Biden thinks before he speaks. This time, he did not, probably because it was spoken from his heart.

I offer my thanks and appreciation to any and all who have served in our country's military forces, especially to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. I have a family member among that group.

Yes, Mr. Biden has been known to speak before he thinks, but that man has passion and it shows in his speaches.

As a parent who has lost three children, after a number of years we usually remember the great times we had together. Those memories, thankfully, come first. Then the sense of deep loss sets in. I don't think that can eaver be erased by time. You say, if he had lived or if she had lived etc.

I too saw VP Biden on TV and have to thank him for his words. Sometimes you feel like you should not laugh about the funny things which happened but you do and the sorrow comes later.
