Beau Biden (1969-2015)


I’m sad to post that earlier tonight, Beau Biden died. He was the son of Vice President Joe Biden. He had brain cancer and died surrounded by his family. There really aren’t words when someone as good and decent as Beau dies, and it’s only compounded by his being only 46 and leaving behind two children. I was open to admiring Beau because of how long I’d followed his father in politics. Joe is a man that I have long respected, and Beau earned his own respect through his work as Attorney General (of Delaware).

One organization that I learned about from Beau Biden is the Darkness to Light Foundation whose mission is to empower people to prevent child sexual abuse.

The Washington Post has a story about his passing.
