As many people know, former Vice President Joe Biden lost his first wife and infant daughter in a traffic auto accident, many years ago, while out Christmas shopping. Their two young sons, Beau and Hunter, ages four snd three survived, but after many weeks in the hospital. Over time, as the two boys became successful, grown men, they were Joe’s closest personal advisors.
Promise Me Dad, a quote from Beau, that after he is gone, Joe would run for President, if at all possible. Biden, in fact, formed a uniquely personal relationship with President Barack Obama, Even more importantly, that Joe Biden promised Beau that he would be OK. Some might see this book about a Vice President; but, it is really a story of a Great American Family!
The thoughts in this book were interspersed as Biden fulfilled his duties as Vice President; however, there were many remembrances, both of Joe’s first tragedy, and having to raise two young boys as a single Congressman; and then, what the growing family went through in trying to save Beau’s life. And throughout it all, the doctors were heroic in doing all they could. Joe Biden supported civil rights, defended the Police, and exhibited respect and empathy to all.
