Joe Biden talked about that horrible day in his Yale commencement speech, saying:

Six weeks after my election, my whole world was altered forever. While I was in Washington hiring staff, I got a phone call. My wife and three children were Christmas shopping, a tractor trailer broadsided them and killed my wife and killed my daughter. And they weren’t sure that my sons would live.

After losing his wife and daughter Joe's career was almost over. But he found strengths to continue living.
