After a fiery election campaign against President Donald Trump and numerous twists and turns, Joe Biden is the new President of the United States of America.
This man would seem to be like an “ordinary” President, but we must not judge a book by its cover, mentioning an aphorism.
His private life has been characterized by many ups and downs.
He was born in the state of Pennsylvania on November 20 1942. When he was a child he soon realized having a form of stuttering and to overcome it he started memorizing and repeating long speeches.
After graduating in 1961, he attended university to study history and political science. During his last year of university he met Neilia Hunter, who would become his wife and then they had 2 sons: Beau and Hunter and a daughter, Naomi Christina.
In 1972, during his election as senator, a tragical event marked the new President’s life forever: his wife and children were involved in a serious car accident, as a consequence Biden had to say goodbye to his women, the lady he had loved deeply and thanks to her he had created his family. Unfortunately his wife and his daughter died, while the two sons were seriously injured.
But being a determined and strong man, he did not give up and swore in the senate from the hospital where his children were hospitalized.
His strength and his determination were not vain, he fell but he was able to get up again. Sometimes life preserves something unexpected and beautiful. He found happiness and fell in love again with Jill Jacobs, an american teacher; they had a daughter.
His happiness lasted for a short time due to the death of his firstborn from a bad disease.
Needless to say that this man’s strength is immeasurable, he managed to overcome all his traumas and with determination continued to follow his political dream.
He deserves this victory, he would deserve an award in patience. His patience to wait in silence and never give up. This man has become a source of inspiration for me.
Thanks to his private story, I understood obstacles are just lessons to learn and starting points from which restart even stronger.
