Joe Biden goes offscript on Memorial Day speech to surviving familes

Love him or hate him, Joe Biden has more humanity than any politician I've heard.
There are links all over the web, here's an edited one. Suggest you find the whole thing. Different links of the event in the "in the news" tab at TAPS site www.taps.org/
Hope this helps capture the spirit of the 'holiday'.
"This isn't just a three day weekend"
God bless America, may God bless Joe's family and the TAPS families.

Big hand for the vp.
Truly beautiful moment.
Nice to see all the usual bs put aside for these families that suffered so much.

Watch this BEFORE your football game or barbecue.
This will help you remember what Memorial Day is really about and that some families will be missing a loved one today because that loved one died on a battlefield somewhere - for US.

That has to be one of teh most honest speachs I've ever seen given by a politician in my life. And yes Peter you are right. Memorial day is about those that gave all for this country - made teh ultimate sacrifice. It is something we can't honestly ever repay. We can only try.
