"[Joe Biden] told another story about a quarry swimming hole where, as a boy, he used to go diving from nearly 100 feet up a rock wall:
The frightening part was you go down really far, I mean literally really far. So deep it's totally black. Your chest constricts, you panic and you don't know whether you're swimming down or up.
But when you get about 12 to 14 feet from the top you see light and everything is OK. You're still 12 feet underwater, but it's OK. You see light.
That's the American people, man. We've gotta give them light."
