I used to work at the White House, and I remember watching this speech live at my computer in 2012 and feeling the tears stream down my face. At 2:46, Vice President Biden tells the story of his son returning from Iraq. At 3:35, he tells the story of his own loss. And at 10:40, he explains how he knew he would make it through his pain, and how you can too.Trigger warning.
