House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) Sunday night received the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award for her efforts in expanding American’s access to healthcare, among other things.
At a ceremony Sunday night in Boston’s John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, Pelosi was the star of the night, lauded with several speeches before taking the stage to accept her award.
“I’m totally at a loss for words. I’m speechless. I’m overwhelmed by the honor of it all,” she said.
Caroline Kennedy, daughter of President Kennedy, presented Pelosi with the award after a short speech where she applauded Pelosi for “consistently acting in service of our highest principles and our most vulnerable citizens.”
Pelosi was joined by several members of the Kennedy family on stage after receiving the award.
