Brayden Harrington, a 13-year-old who bonded with President Joe Biden over their shared experience with stuttering, made an appearance during the inauguration special “Celebrating America."
Harrington recited a passage from President John F. Kennedy's inaugural address.
"In the long history of the world only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger, I do not shrink from that responsibility. I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us will exchange places with any other people or any other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it. And the glow from that fire can truly light the world. And so my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what can you do for your country," Harrington recited.
Harrington also spoke during last year's Democratic National Convention and shared his story about how Biden inspired him.
