    1. @ClownGaming RB Love your passion but this is not really the time of place.
      Could you at least wait in the parking lot until after the family says goodbye to their loved one.

  1. Jesus, thank you Biden for this moment of farewell for all those who we lost this past year. God be with the family’s left behind.

  2. professor glaude-i am so sorry for your loss. a dear friend is a golden treasure. i send you prayers. i have really been grateful for your presence on msnbc over the past few years since i began watching. you are such a brilliant thinker, with such a wonderful heart and soul. alas, those very qualities are what make a moment like this so much harder for you. please know how many people’s lives you touch also, just as your friend touched yours. thank you.

  3. Beautiful gesture by a beautiful soul, inspired by our compassionate President-Elect Biden. May peace be in the hearts of the families affected.

  4. I share your grief, Eddie. I lost an old friend to COVID last week, someone I’ve known since I was thirteen (I’m closing in on 70 now). We have mutual friends and we can’t even get together to toast our comrade and wish him a good journey. I curse this virus and all those whose selfishness, ignorance, and incompetence have facilitated its spread.

    1. I am just wondering why someone would give this video a thumbs down losing someone to Covid is a tragic situation

    2. @Isabelle Zealand / Exactly. The devil uses people for his work too. People tend to forget that. God did his job by putting saviors of science in the way of Covid. They were ignored and the wrath still hasn’t been felt

  5. leave that memorial up, we are not done with our grief yet. and i hope out of respect, Trump goes quietly, who wants to see fanfare at a time like this.

  6. Man, this is just so painful for this country. This didn’t have to happen like this at all.. Just think, people are still saying this isn’t real..

    1. It’s the alternate reality that these people live in. Social media sees conspiracy theories spread like a virus. You see the post, the theory jives with your anti-establishment anti media narrative, and you accept it. Then you spread it. You only talk to people who believe it, and it becomes an echo chamber. Conspiracy theories are virulent and deceptively difficult to extinguish. No amount of logic will stop it. It’s so sad.

    2. @Chris Smith I have said for so long, lies are much more entertaining than the truth to people like this..

  7. That is beautiful! Those flags and lights with Lincoln sitting there. Biden hit the right tone given that he couldn’t have real people there. Great job!
