Wow. Powerful. I saw the same effect on people when my father shared that his disability did

not define him, did not slow him down, or keep him from striving to achieve the same, and much more, than able bodied.

You could see it in people's faces...here was an important man telling them that they could hope to look beyond their disability.

That the right to seek some type of normal life, with fewer barriers to buildings and to the ladder of success, was a civil right.

Some would smile, some beam, some would softly tear up. But always an impact. A reaction to a human outreach of genuine concern and empathy that is far too rare.

And Joe Biden clearly has that empathy.
