Six years ago today, 26 innocent lives were lost in senseless act of gun violence. Today we stand with Newtown and every community affected by gun violence. Across the nation, let us remember the 26 lives lost with an act of kindness. Compassion is contagious.

The white of the Capitol dome gleaming in the night still sends shivers down my spine. For we are fortunate enough to live in this amazing country where we have the right to choose our leaders, to raise our voices, and together forge a better nation for our children.

This morning I gave my final remarks on the House floor. Thank you to my constituents who entrusted me to work on their behalf, my staff who worked so hard and ably, and my many colleagues who generously guided me for an amazing 6 years in Congress.

There’s nothing like picking your own tree and bringing it home to get in the holiday spirit! Great to see Alice and Tom at Spruce Hill Farm in Thomaston - some of the best trees this side of the North Pole!

Over the past 6 years, my staff and I have worked tirelessly to help my constituents. We were able to collect $8 million in Social Security benefits, $3.5 million in veterans benefits, $1 million in Medicare benefits and $900,000 from the IRS.

More than 1 in 4 transgender people have faced bias-driven assault, with rates even higher for transgender people of color. We need to do better to remedy this ongoing and senseless epidemic of violence committed against transgender and other gender diverse people.
