Joe Biden, the Vice President of America, lost his son Beau Biden at the weekend who died from brain cancer. This video is of a speech Joe Biden gave a few weeks ago. It is immensely touching and, while his son’s serious illness was a secret at this stage, viewed with the gift of hindsight it lends a poignancy that is heartbreaking. I have always subscribed to the same belief as Joe Biden – success is when my daughter turns out to be better than me in every way. Piers Morgan has written about Beau Biden.
