Jolie Speaks On Behalf of Iraqi Child Refugees

Supermom Angelina Jolie was in Washington D.C. on Tuesday afternoon talking about the importance of education for Iraqi child refugees. Speaking to the Council on Foreign Relations, Jolie said:

"It is a fact that the best way to heal children in conflict and their trauma is to focus their minds on their future," she told the crowd.

"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.

"We need these kids ... to rebuild their country, to stabilize their country and eventually lead their country."

It wasn't all work and no play for Jolie though, after her moving speech she took her sons to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. Is there anything this woman can't do?
