Biden, who lost his wife and daughter in a car crash, talks about the small personal memories that those who have lost loved ones will recall for the rest of lives. “They will never be truly gone,” he says. “There’s something that is never fully lost, your love for them and their love for you.

He lauds the heroism of Israelis – civilians who fought terrorists, medics who treated victims, reservists who left everything to save lives during the Hamas onslaught.

“The State of Israel was born to be a safe place for the Jewish people of the world. That’s why it was born,” he says. “While it may not feel that way today, Israel must again be a safe place for the Jewish people.”
