(CNSNews.com) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi celebrated the Kennedy family as “a model of faith and hope” as she accepted the “Profile in Courage Award” from John F. Kennedy’s daughter Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston on May 19.
“The Kennedy family has given so much to America’s history and to America’s future,” Pelosi said in her acceptance speech.
“We remain in awe of the courage that is the Kennedy constant: their courage to accept the best and the saddest that God’s will has descended upon them and their courage to be a model of faith and hope,” she said.
“God bless the memory of President Kennedy and the family that he loved,” she said. “May we heed his words that, here on Earth, God’s work must truly be our own.”
