Courage | Mark Kirk for Senate | Mark Kirk for Senate | Illinois


NEWS CLIP: Senator Kirk has
suffered a stroke… KIRK: I remember being in the
ambulance, and holding the hand of the paramedic… …and knowing something
was very wrong. I thought that was the last
human being I would ever touch. I had to learn
how to walk again. I forced myself to climb
up steps everyday, even up our tallest building. I was determined to return to
the Senate, to do the job you elected me to. Second to my service in the
Navy, being your Senator is the greatest honor of my life. As I learned to walk and climb
again, I thought of our Illinois families struggling to get by… I thought of our veterans and
our heroic men and women who are serving in harm’s way. They’re the reason why
I fought so hard to get back. They’re why I never
doubted that I would climb the Capitol steps again. I climb the steps for everyone
facing their own challenges. I’m Mark Kirk, and I
approve this message.
