Angelina Jolie: I Will Raise My Children with "An Education of the World"

Angelina Jolie was on hand to celebrate World Refugee Day in Washington on Thursday, where she spoke about her dedication to teaching her children about the world's problems -- and what they can do to help.

"Some of my kids are from countries that have seen conflict," Angie told CNN's Anderson Cooper. "I usually just explain to them that there are other families in the world that aren't as fortunate as ours and other kids and their mommies... are somewhere in a country that's not as safe.... So I tell them that it's important for all of us to do what we can and then go to these places and understand what's happening."

Brad Pitt's love says she's determined to give her brood first-hand knowledge as to what life is like outside of their very privileged box -- in hopes of making them "better people as they get older."

"They're just being raised that this is the normal thing to do," she said. "Hopefully I'll take them to as many countries as I can and raise them with an education of the world."

Dude, you've got to hand it to the Jolie-Pitts for setting some example for their children. I feel accomplished if I've managed to get through the day without saying a curse word in earshot of my son. Angie is on a whole different plane.
