Biden signs bill to award Congressional Medal to US Capitol Police--now this is a real President

Today President Biden signed a bill to award Congressional Gold Medals to the US Capitol Police. Below is a live stream of the whole event but what really touched my heart was the way President Biden interacted with the families, especially the children afterward. That happens around the 17:00 mark. Made me tear up seeing a real human President with empathy. What this country truly needs.



Same video on Biden twitter feed:

1. US Capitol Police, Metropolitan Police and the other departments who responded.

Some as far away as New Jersey.

It is so good to have a President who is able to show compassion for those who have undergone trauma.

He is a good man, and the right man for these troubled times.

4. I think all the Capitol Police who were there on January 6th should receive medals...

it was not a PICNIC.

5. Q: Isn't this why we gave the Biden-Harris ticket 81 million votes?

A: You betcha!

6. It's funny how things work out---I didn't want Biden to run initially

In the very beginning, I was torn between Warren and Buttigieg. I've always loved Joe Biden, but I felt he was too "old school" (not to be confused with old age) and the Democratic party needed to be nudged a bit more in a progressive direction. Then COVID came along. I can't think of a more perfect fit than Joe Biden to address what our Nation is going through. A man who has gone through incredible pain and persevered. So grateful he is our President.
