Two strong moments that happened several kilometers from each other. On Wednesday, January 20, Joe Biden was officially invested as the 46th President of the United States in Washington. It was during a solemn ceremony that he and his vice-president Kamala Harris took an oath on the Bible, in front of many personalities and celebrities who had made the trip for the occasion. And while it was time to celebrate in the American capital, with the presence of Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez, in Delaware, a soldier in uniform created the emotion, by meditating on Beau Biden’s grave.
Indeed, this man was seen on one knee in front of the burial place of Joe Biden’s son, who died of a brain tumor in 2015 at the age of 46. A politician with an incredible career, who was ready to follow in his father’s footsteps, who had a wish that was very dear to him: that he one day run for his candidacy for the presidential elections. But if Beau Biden did not have time to realize such a dream, Joe Biden is working today to honor the memory of his son, and this from the White House.
