Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) made a triumphant return to Congress today after a severe stroke and subsequent recovery a year ago.
Senators and Representatives, Republicans and Democrats welcomed Senator Kirk back to work.
Senator Kirk walked the 45 steps to return to the Senate.
Mark Kirk says he saw angels after his stroke.
World Net Daily reported:
For Mark Kirk, there was no white light, no tunnel.
What Illinois’ junior U.S. senator experienced was three angels standing at the foot of his bed.
“You want to come with us?” Kirk was asked.
“No,” he told them. “I’ll hold off.”
The Highland Park Republican, who plans to return to the Senate when Congress convenes Thursday, recounted the story in his first in-depth interview since he suffered a massive stroke nearly a year ago.
