Angelina Shares Words and Tears For the Refugees

Angelina Jolie took the podium in Washington DC today at the 2009 World Refugee Day at National Geographic Society. She arrived in the capital early this morning with Maddox and Pax before speaking out. The subject matter is obviously one that's very close to Angie's heart, and she got a little teary as images showed on the screen behind her. This is just the start of an important day for Angelina, who continues to show her dedication to philanthropy year after year.

Sometimes I just don't know what these celebs are thinking. They say they care but then their overall actions show that they honestly don't, which leads intelligent people to feel that it's all for publicity to keep them in the media, NOT the charity itself.

Sorry Angie can't finish one sentence. Its nice for them to give money, but Angie has a motive for everything, I definetly don't believe those crocodile tears b/c there really wasn't any.

Glad that the refugees got the attention needed. I go by actions not words, if Darfur was so important to Angelina why did it take her 4 years between first mentioning Darfur to now? My personal opinion is she needed some good pr with all the break up rumors and etc. Five years ago she said she would slow down doing movies and yet still hasn't. The twins were 7 months when she started Salt. (I don't care about Jen/Brad thing - don't EVER want them back together) Being filmed for a couple of hours with refugees isn't the same as Bill Gates wife going and staying in working. The lower and middle income family gives more per dollar than the rich and that is a fact! There was a special on who gives in America. Maybe we need to recognize more of our neighbors that give then these celebrities.

Very eloquently put "like that matters". But for some here, it fall in deaf ears. It is so pathetic how women treat other women. Angelina DOES not want to be Mother Teresa. Mother Teresa was a bride of Jesus, a nun also to be a saint you must be dead in order to be canonized. People, stop been simple minded.

All crocodile tears. Stop being a phoney a**. I believe nothing you and Brad say. You still trying to fix your image and thats all that matters to you. Only you.

That's a skewed interpretation. Karma is the total effect of a person's actions that determine his/her destiny in their next incarnation. Karma means that everyone is responsible for their own destiny, through reincarnation.

I dont respect her one bit. She's a man stealer and sorry to say but there's always karma for that. Sometimes karma happens quick and sometimes yearssssss later. Sadly sometimes its your innocent loved ones or kids that suffer the karma of the parent's doing.

If you do not like her for "ruining " a marriage, (IMO it was broken for a while) - there is a LONG list of celebs like Catherine Zeta Jones ect.... that you should not like as well. The list is very long, it is just that those triangles did not involve 3 very famous people that were on every cover of every magazine STILL to this day!

I respect her for being dedicated to raising awareness , donating millions and risking her own life to travel to these places for over a decade. This is not a trend to her- this is what her life is. She goes a bit deeper then many others.

ok Angelina never brought any of her child a diamond pacifier. Thats BS, and Angelina has dedicated 8 years of her life of to this. I know Angelina's goal is to bring awareness and she does that. If Angelina donates money to refugees how many other people think "Wow if this cause is good enough for her to donate maybe I should do it." Then guess more money for the people who need. Only a bunch of small minded JEALOUS people have to bring it back to publicity when Angelina doesn't even make that many films, hardly ever does lat night shows, or weird appearances. Angelina Just wants to help these children, these families. I am not gonna let a bunch of small minded JEALOUS people detract from that. I also happen to adore Angelina and if I wanna call her amazing (because ding dong she is amazing) I am. If you didn't think so fine but to belittle the hard work she does and come up with a bunch of BS reasons and to believe all the junk you read while your buying food at the supermarket is awful, its low, and its unnecessary.

55 comments thus far and most are negative comments .... about aj's looks and spending habits. wow! c'mon, she's not advertising a new it bag or a beverage, she's supporting world refugee day for christ's sake. i'll be with the minority here and applaud jolie for her humanitarian work and look forward to watching more about the cause tonight on cnn. i know it's definitely opened my eyes!
