Sen. Duckworth’s Memoir: “Every Day is a Gift”


Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) has recently come out with a memoir trailing her experiences of growing up as a Thai-American, being the product of a mixed race marriage, what it was like living off of food stamps, why she entered the US military and suffering life threatening injuries during an attack in Iraq.

The 21st was joined by Sen. Duckworth to talk more about her memoir and how she wanted to make it different from other memoirs.
