113th Session Of Congress Convenes
An American flag design is seen on one of the prosthetic legs of Representative-elect Tammy Duckworth, a Democrat from Illinois, left, as she stands on the Senate steps after arriving at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013. Duckworth lost both legs after her helicopter was shot down in Iraq in 2004. The 113th Congress convenes today in Washington where new members will try to meld their diverse backgrounds in a legislature containing a record seven openly gay lawmakers, an unprecedented 20 women in the Senate and the first all-female state delegation, from New Hampshire.
