    MIKULSKI. Madam President, what a wonderful speech. I am proud to serve with Senator McCain. America has so few heroes. America needs all the heroes we can get, and people whom we can identify with--not comic book figures wearing weird costumes. There are men and women who put themselves in harm's way and do daring and dashing things for the good of other people, and it is just an honor. We have our dustups, but that is part of the fun.

    I just want to salute Senator McCain in the warmest and most sincere way. God bless Senator McCain, and we wish him good health--and even a good voice and occasionally a good amendment. Again, it is an honor.

    If I might speak to the Republican leader, I am so glad Senator McConnell did this today because I think we need to take a pause to understand why we are in it together, why we should respect each other, work with each other, and take a moment or two to recall a great story about a great hero.

    The ACTING PRESIDENT pro tempore. The Senator from Arizona.
