In First Public Appearance Since Stroke, Kirk Climbs Willis Tower Stairs for Fundraiser

Video of the Day — Regardless of your politics, it’s impossible to not be inspired by this video of U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk climbing of 37 flights of stairs in the Willis Tower on Sunday. Since suffering a debilitating stroke in January, Kirk, 53, has appeared in occasional photos and few ads for political allies, but this was his first public appearance. The event was a fundraiser for the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, which has helped Kirk learn to walk again over the last nine months.
