Angelina Jolie Smiles Upon The World

Bask in the glow! Here’s Angelina Jolie trying to make the world a better place at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, D.C. She gave a speech declaring that education is the best way to help Iraqi child refugees. I

“It is a fact that the best way to heal children in conflict and their trauma is to focus their minds on their future. This population we’re talking about is the future of Iraq,” she added. “So to reach them now, to help deal with their trauma and refocus their minds on a possible future should absolutely be one of our top priorities,” she told the crowd.

Angie has been to Iraq twice in the last year, and says that children there are “desperate” for education. And maybe some body armor. Jesus.
