Rep. Scalise Welcomed Back to Congress With Standing Ovation and a Speech That Will Leave You in Tears
“I’m a living example that miracles really do happen”
After suffering a critical gun shot wound to the hip during a June Congressional baseball practice, Rep. Steve Scalise returned to Congress Thursday.
As disheartening as the events leading to his months-long absence were, his return was nothing short of inspirational.
