Speier released a video on Tuesday announcing her retirement from office after 12 years of service in the House.

The California Democrat recounted “lying on an airstrip in the jungles of Guyana with five bullet holes” in her body after she and her 1978 congressional fact-finding delegation were shot by People’s Temple members in Guyana the same day as the Jonestown Massacre and how she pledged to go into public service should she survive.

“I lived, and I served,” Speier said. “It has been a remarkable journey that has surpassed my wildest dreams.”
