PRESIDENT Biden's Easter Message!

This week marks some of the most sacred days of the year for many people of faith – from Passover to Holy Week.

Symbols of spring and renewal and rebirth.

Beliefs which may be harder to believe than ever this year – but never more important.

These days I think a lot about the words written by the philosopher Kierkegaard: “Faith sees best in the dark.”

And Lord knows these are dark days in this nation and across the world. I know how true those words have been in my own life.

Faith is what helped me get through the loss of my wife and daughter in a car accident 47 years ago.

Faith is what helped me get through the loss of my son Beau to cancer in 2015.

And for many, faith will help us get through the crisis that grips this nation today. I’m not saying this to proselytize – each of us in America is free to find our own way, whether that’s a particular religious faith or no faith at all.

I just know how I have gotten through the darkest days in my life.

And I have absolute confidence that this nation will get through the dark days we’re living through today.

For those who have lost loved ones, I know how hard it is – and I know no one can tell you how you feel. But from my own experience, I can tell you this – the loved one you’ve lost will always have a place in your heart.

And while it may be hard to believe right now – there will come a day when their memory will bring a smile to your lips before it brings a tear to your eyes. My hope is that day will come sooner than later. But if there’s one thing I know – it will come.

What I believe for those who have lost a loved one, I believe for this nation: We will smile again. We will laugh again. We will know better days.

This virus is tough. But this nation is tougher.

The story of America is the story of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. We are seeing this all around us. Courage. Strength. Selflessness. Resilience.

In these days of reflection, let’s remember to care for one another, to look out for one another, to love one another – and to pray for one another.

Thank you for reading. Happy Easter to those celebrating. And to all – a restful Sunday.

Joe Biden
