Angelina Jolie has appealed to the United Nations Security Council to try and stop sexual violence in war zones. The actress, who is also a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations, told members it was “their responsibility” to act. She said: “Rape is a tool of war. It is an act of aggression and a crime against humanity.”
"It is inflicted intentionally to destroy the woman, the family and the community. It ruins lives and fuels conflict.
The United Nations charter is clear. You, the Security Council, have primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security.”
After Angelina spoke, the UN Security Council voted unanimously to pass a resolution recognising that rape can exacerbate conflicts and delay peace. (Report by Sarah Johnston).

Look, I know you doubt me, I know you always have. And you’re right… I often think of Bag End. I miss my books, and my armchair, and my garden. See, that’s where I belong, that’s home. That’s why I came back… ‘cause you don’t have one, a home. It was taken from you. But I will help you take it back if I can.

"We are the generation of nostalgia. We grew up in the age of transition. From hand-written letters to electronic mails. From film to digital. We were fascinated by new things, neglecting the way we spend our afternoons. Cupcakes and tea. Play-Doh and Polly Pockets. Young and naive. Technology completely changed the way we waited and we grew up too fast. The simple things in life seems more meaningful now. We grew up in the age of transition and have become the generation of nostalgia."
