The people of America think that Biden, as President, will restore America’s leadership and build communities better.
He was born November 20, 1942. As a child, Biden struggled with bullying and children called him “Dash” and “Joe impedimenta” to make fun of him. He eventually overcame his speech impediment by memorizing a long paragraph of poetry and reading it aloud in front of a mirror. After completion his education at Archmere Academy (1961), University of Delaware (1965) and Syracuse University (1968), he got married to Neilia Hunter (born on July 28, 1942) on August 27, 1966 and Joe Biden and Neilia Hunter Biden had three children, Joseph “Beau” (born in 1969), Robert “Hunter” (born in 1970) and Naomi “Amy” (born in 1971). He loved his sons too much. He went to Delaware (150km) every night to kiss his son goodnight.
In 1972, he was struck by devastating tragedy. On December 18,1972 his wife Neilia and infant daughter Naomi were killed in a road accident while driving to pick up a Christmas tree and his sons Beau and Hunter were seriously injured. On January 3, 1973 he took the oath of the office as a fifth youngest US senatorat in history at age 29 at the Hospital where his son Beau was being treated. Joe Biden lost all ambition for some time. He said, “For the first time in my life, I understood how someone could consciously decide to commit suicide.” But Biden “got up,” as his father had taught him to go on and not to look back.
He got the second married Jill Tracy Jacobs on June 17,1977 and they had one child Ashley Blazer Biden (born on June 8, 1981).
It wasn’t his last blow. In 1988, he suffered two life-threatening cases and his facial muscles were paralyzed for a while. Beau died of brain cancer in 2015. Hunter was addicted with cocaine and was discharged from the US Navy for using cocaine.
