You’re Defined by Your Courage, Joe Biden
Vice President Joe Biden reflects on how his parents raised him to be the feminist man he is today.
JOE BIDEN: My mother's expression always was-- she looks at you-- Joey, look at me. Remember, you're defined by your courage and you're redeemed by your loyalty. And she meant it. I mean, it was drilled into us. And my father was, you know-- you're a man of a word. Without your word, you're no man. But my father abhorred the abuse of power, whether it was physical or political or financial. And so it was ingrained in us that we know we had an obligation to look out for each other and for other people.
