I thought I posted this early today.
By far, my favorite moment of the last night of the Democratic presidential convention was the incredible appearance by 13-year-old Brayden Harrington.
The teen spoke at the DNC about how he bonded with Joe Biden because they both have a stutter. “He told me that we were members of the same club — we stutter.”
Just some of the reactions on the Twitter:
I stutter. Have my entire life. Taught myself to hide it but it’s always there. Always
There is no way I could be as brave as that little boy, at his age.
I’m honestly crying. Jesus

It was amazing. Forever and ever, every time I see or hear Trump, this is all I see. His vile cruelty. I am so ready for that picture to be erased from my head and heart. Joe Biden is a man of character and integrity. Joe Biden can wipe away that image. pic.twitter.com/0rra01kTmj

Brayden Harrington’s video about having a stutter like Biden was also a stark contrast to the President who mocks reporters with disabilities. #DemConvention

13 year-old Brayden Harrington….tears….rolling.
“We need the world to feel better.”
“Kids like me are counting on you to elect someone we can look up to.”
Decency. I miss decency. The president should be a role model not a cautionary tale!
Best part tonight so far 💙
