Joe Biden’s mother passes away

Sad.

Vice President Joe Biden’s mother, 92-year-old Jean Biden, died Friday, according to the White House.

Vice President Biden’s statement, as released by the White House:

THE WHITE HOUSE

Office of the Vice President

For Immediate Release

January 8, 2010

Statement from Vice President Joe Biden

“My mother, Catherine Eugenia “Jean” Finnegan Biden, passed away peacefully today at our home in Wilmington, Delaware, surrounded by her children, her grandchildren, her great-grandchildren and many loved ones. At 92, she was the center of our family and taught all of her children that family is to be treasured, loyalty is paramount and faith will guide you through the tough times. She believed in us, and because of that, we believed in ourselves. Together with my father, her husband of 61 years who passed away in 2002, we learned the dignity of hard work and that you are defined by your sense of honor. Her strength, which was immeasurable, will live on in all of us.”

Thoughts and prayers with the Biden family at this time

Bombing in Iraq

The death toll from twin car bombings in Baghdad climbed to 160, with at least 540 people more wounded in the deadliest attack in the capital in more than two years, the Interior Ministry said Monday.

Among the wounded were three American security contractors, the U.S. Embassy said, declining to provide further details. The area struck is close to the heavily guarded “green zone,” which houses the embassy.

Let’s hope the Iraqi’s can come out of this and fight for the freedom they deserve.

Anti-abortion activist shot in front of High School, another close by

This morning a anti-abortion activist was protesting in front of a school when they were shot and killed. The shooting happened around the time when most students were in class and the suspect has been taken into custody. Another man around the corner was also shot and killed, the police suspect the same man did it. He is in custody and has been charged

It does not matter what side of the fence you are on, both sides have a right to protest, safely. Protestors have a right to protest and must always be mindful of others who are for them and against them but also for the passerbys around them that dont want to be inconvienced no matter how much you think everyone should care about your cause.

So sad.
