The younger generation could turn our terrible tide.

So stated Joe Biden Saturday.

He delivered an address to America’s high school graduates, which was posted to social media.

“This past year has been an extraordinarily difficult year for our country and for the world,” the President said.

He expressed his pride:

“I’m proud of each and every one of you.”
