Jolie receives honorary damehood.angelina jolie damehood

Sometimes when stars receive “honorary awards” I just want to roll my eyes because it feels fake, just another step on the popularity ladder.  This time I feel as though it is well-deserved.  Angelina Jolie has always been an advocate for women, children, and peace.  It doesn’t feel as if her concern is fake.  Usually when you find out she or Brad Pitt are doing something, it has actually already happened.

Congratulations Angelina Jolie.

Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 2 1/2, I understand pain, fatigue, laughter, joy, and love all while on crutches and in wheelchairs. This blog is just about me, mostly the writing side, but there are forays into so many different topics. I am married to a wonderful husband who puts up with my writing, knitting, yarn, with the love of a saint. We have fur babies, and one cat who rules us all.

  1. Brian Bixby says:

    David Canadine, in “The Decline and Fall of the British Aristocracy,” traced how the honors system of noble titles and knighthoods, which used to be tied to the other measures of power in British society (wealth, land, political office), gradually became unstuck from those measures and became more democratic, a development that according to his analysis really got going between 1880 and 1922.

    Sadly, you’ll wince when you read what one of the great driving forces for this change was: the political parties needed a way to reward wealthy men whose only merit was in making large campaign contributions.
