<p><em>Delaware News Journal</em>’s Patricia Talorico was thinking about Beau too, remembering the time she was sitting at an event, frustrated about a story she had to write about politicians and campaigns. Beau wasn’t in the Attorney General’s office, she explained, noting he wasn’t an official or a politician.</p><p>”I’m sure the despair showed in my face,” she wrote. “Then I heard a friendly voice say, ‘Hey, how are you? Are you OK?'”</p><p>It was Beau, holding out his hand with a smile and an introduction.</p><p>She remembered the day of the funeral in Wilmington when the then-vice president and Dr. Jill Biden stood for hours as floods of people walked through their family church to pay their respects after Beau died of brain cancer. </p><p>So, as Beau’s father was about to be sworn in, Talorico said that she thought she’d drive by the cemetery and say a prayer for Beau at the church, which also happens to be her home church. </p><p>”I saw <a href=”https://www.delawareonline.com/story/news/politics/2021/01/20/joe-biden-inaugurated-while-uniformed-man-kneels-beau-bidens-grave/4233673001/” target=”_blank”>a lone man in a blue uniform kneeling at Beau’s grave</a>,” she wrote. “No one else was around on this cold, windy afternoon except for a few people doing outside work at the cemetery. In my car, I had the radio tuned to CNN. Joe Biden was being sworn in as president and was about to begin his address.”</p><p>She watched from afar as the uniformed man bowed his head and clasped his hands. </p><p>”The image brought tears to my eyes,” she wrote. “I couldn’t bring myself to interrupt this poignant, solemn moment. I took some photos from a distance, and pulled my car over to a nearby roadway. I listened to the end of Biden’s speech and drove back to see if the man was still there. He was. And he was still kneeling, still had his head bowed.”</p><p>She noted she could have gone to ask his name and information, but she left instead, allowing the man to spend the inauguration with the new president’s son. </p><p><a href=”https://www.delawareonline.com/story/news/2021/01/20/why-took-photo-beau-bidens-grave-going-viral-delaware-president-inauguration/4233905001/” target=”_blank”>Read Talorico’s full piece</a> and see the photo below: </p><div class=”rm-shortcode” data-rm-shortcode-id=”1d13fbbdc4e6c8670c8922575d45c66e” id=”35e32″><blockquote class=”twitter-tweet twitter-custom-tweet” data-partner=”rebelmouse” data-twitter-tweet-id=”1351946472527433731″><div style=”margin:1em 0″>Poignant moment: While Joe Biden gave his inauguration speech, a lone man in a uniform knelt at the Delaware grave… https://t.co/8jdivRMZ45</div> — Patricia Talorico (@Patricia Talorico)<a href=”https://twitter.com/PattyTalorico/statuses/1351946472527433731″>1611164131.0</a></blockquote></div>
