(NECN: Boston, Mass.) - Leymah Gbowee this morning received the 2009 John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award. Gbowee was honored for organizing a multifaith group of women to help end Liberia's civil war. The award was presented by Caroline Kennedy at a ceremony at Boston's John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. "If you're hungry, keep walking. If you're thirsty, keep walking. If you want a taste of freedom, keep walking. For us women of Liberia, this award is a call that we will keep walking until peace, justice and the rights of women is not a dream, but a thing of the present," said Gbowee.
