In every moment of his life, Joe Biden has climbed a rung in America’s political career. But also, while adding achievements, in parallel, he faces a tragedy.
The Catholic birthplace of the virtual president-elect of the United States gave him the desire to help others and cooperate without being above others.
However, since he was little, he faced ridicule from boys in the soccer league and from his school group mates for his difficulties with language.
Biden was a stutterer and fought his condition by practicing with discipline.
The stuttering accompanied him the first decades of life, like the Roman Emperor Claudius and King George VI of the United Kingdom.
With that stigma as their calling card, the three buried that stigma and after doing so catapulted their political careers.
Although the vestige of that time in his childhood still appears today, now Biden turns to that episode in his life to defend his identity. “Stuttering can’t define who you are,” he told the magazine. The Atlantic.
That has even inspired his followers, like 13-year-old Brayden Harrington, who participated by video in the Democratic Convention last August and highlighted the help he received from Biden.
Without Joe Biden I wouldn’t be talking to you now. In no time, he gave me confidence. He is someone who cares about you and whom you can trust, ”he shared at the event in which the party formally nominated its candidate to run for the White House.
After learning of his virtual victory in the elections on November 3, Harrington told CBS: “I see him as a role model. He stutters and got this far in life, as president-elect, and that’s really brave. “

NUMBER TWO AND FRIEND
Biden was vice president during the eight years of the Barack Obama administration.
In addition to the bond in the White House, the relationship expressed loyalty and mutual affection.
In June 2019, Joe tweeted: “Happy best friend day to my friend Barack Obama.” The message was illustrated with an image of two bracelets like those that one child weaves to another in an act of commitment to eternal friendship. They had each other’s names and an account with a happy face.
I think Joe has all the qualities we need in a president at this time, “Obama said last April, already in the middle of the election year.
The former president was an important part of the last stretch of the electoral campaign by participating in rallies in which he highlighted Biden’s abilities to take charge of the White House.
Biden stands up for his values. Today he is the second elected Catholic president, after John F. Kennedy.
In fact, it was entrusted to God before the elections started. In addition, a person from his environment assured that he always wears a rosary and attends mass every Sunday, as stated Excelsior last week.
And on Thursday he spoke with Pope Francis, who congratulated him and expressed his wishes in favor of a spirit of unity and leadership “as Catholics and Americans.”
