Biden calls protests 'right and necessary,' urges Americans to turn 'anguish into purpose'
"Former Vice President Joe Biden, the apparent Democratic presidential nominee, released a statement just after midnight Sunday morning, calling the protests “right and necessary” while urging peaceful demonstrations over violence.
“I know that a grief that dark and deep may at times feel too heavy to bear,” he said in the statement. “I know. I also know that the only way to bear it is to turn all that anguish into purpose.”
He urged Americans to use their pain to make change.
“We are a nation in pain, but we must not allow this pain to destroy us,” he said."
