My fellow Americans, this week, our nation was shocked and horrified when a gunman opened fire on a Member of Congress.
Five people were wounded in the assault, including a member of House Leadership – my good friend, Steve Scalise.
Steve is beloved across Washington, he embodies everything public service is about
he's dedicated to his constituents, devoted to his values, and deeply committed to his country.
I visited Steve, his wife, and his family in the hospital as he continues to fight for his recovery.
435 Members of Congress, and 300 million Americans, are pulling for him, praying for him, and pledging to him our full and total support.
We continue to hold all of those wounded and fighting for recovery in our hearts and prayers, including Matt Mika, who was also badly wounded.
In that terrible crime, we also witnessed the incredible heroism of Capitol Police.
Special Agent Crystal Griner – who I also had the honor of meeting during my visit to the Hospital – raced into gunfire, along with Special Agent David Bailey.
在去医院探访时，我还很荣幸地遇见了特工Crystal Griner。他和同为特工的David Bailey一起穿越枪林弹雨。
