Friends, now more than ever, we need courage in civic and political life. And so many years ago, President Kennedy shared with is some Profiles in Courage. It is time, friends, to see more profiles, see more courage. Do you know anyone in civic or political life that deserves recognition for their courage?
One of the programs the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation recently launched is their online efforts to promote the bipartisan call for nominations for the 2019 Profile in Courage Award, which honors elected officials of both parties who take a stand for the greater good, despite the consequences. Political courage couldn’t be more important today. Here is further information on this award. https://www.jfklibrary.org/events-and-awards/profile-in-courage-award . Can you help them make this happen through your own social media? Your participation and active posting will help more people take the time to think about what political courage means today and may lead them to discovering the next honoree.
