    Rep. Scalise Welcomed Back to Congress With Standing Ovation and a Speech That Will Leave You in Tears

    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.

    A hero’s welcome:

    Scalise thanks Capitol Hill PD who saved his life:

    Speaker Ryan was more than a little happy to see Scalise back at work:

    And amazingly humble words from someone who almost lost his life:

    His full speech here:

    Welcome back, Rep. Scalise.

    He is what you get when the opposition party incites a civil war and loses.

    And the Twitter Trolls were promptly out in force within minutes of the news tweets, like pigeons looking for freshly washed cars.

    It’s good to have Steve back. The trolls, not so much.

    Praise God for this recovery! He’s walking using two hand crutches, but he’s upright and walking. Wonderful.
