Kennedy, titled The Torch Has Been Passed: JFK’s Legacy Today.
Drawing on the themes of Kennedy’s iconic inaugural address challenging citizens to give back, push the boundaries of science and innovation, and seek a more peaceful world, the symposium featured speeches from former President Bill Clinton, Caroline Kennedy, U.S. Ambassador to Japan and the only surviving child of John F. Jacqueline Kennedy, as well as Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
