  • As a kiwi this makes me cry. When a president and Vice President inspire you to want to be a better person. That is leadership. What good and decent men they are. Happy for the US and the world that Biden is someone we can all look to as inspiration to be better people. How will the world not be a better place?

  • Congratulations Mr President I was so glad to see you get this award because you deserved it but this award should be for the people that you never hear about The ones who are unspoken of the ones who make this country run. Not the rich and famous not the ones who can buy the way, or the ones who were given opportunities by others. I'm talking about the ones who don't get enough recognition as it is. What kind of awards would they get?
