Since 1989, the Kennedy family and the JFK Library Foundation have celebrated those who have shown courage with the Profiles in Courage Award. Now JFK’s daughter Caroline Kennedy and her son Jack Schlossberg join TODAY to announce something special this year – the Profile in COVID Courage Award – and to invite TODAY viewers to send in nominees. “We realized we are seeing courage all around us,” Kennedy says.

Caroline Kennedy and Jack Schlossberg Just Gave Nancy Pelosi a Profile in Courage Award

Kennedy called the Speaker of the House “the most important woman in American political history.”

On Sunday night, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was honored with the 2019 John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston. While she was no doubt flattered by the accolade—which has also been awarded to the likes of former presidents George H.W. Bush and Barack Obama—we have a feeling that the compliment paid to her by her introductory speaker, Caroline Kennedy, daughter of John F. Kennedy, will have a special place in her heart.

“I probably have as great a crush on her as she had on President Kennedy,” said Kennedy, according to People. In case that playful commendation wasn't enough, Kennedy also lauded Pelosi for acting "in service of our highest principles and our most vulnerable citizens. She has suffered defeats, but has never given up. Thanks to her courage we have healthcare for all Americans and the most diverse Congress in American history."

She called the Speaker, “the most important woman in American political history.”

Kennedy introduced Pelosi along with her son, Jack Schlossberg, who added on Instagram that he was, "Honored to introduce Speaker Pelosi and to present her with the 2019 Profiles in Courage Award!!"

The award has been given out since 1989 by members of the Kennedy family to honor JFK's memory and the work of those who embody political courage. Pelosi, who said that she accepted the award with "a full and humble heart," explained the impact that the late president had had on her own political development.

"In high school, I had the privilege to meet Senator Kennedy when he came to Baltimore. My father was mayor, and I got to sit at the head table. Everyone was dazzled by his brilliance,” she said. “In college, I attended his inauguration and, on that freezing, thrilling day, heard his electrifying call to public service."
