GIRL, UNINTERRUPTED : A Look Back on Angelina Jolie

Gia Angelina Jolie Gia Carangi Biography-837982

Earlier today, Angelina Jolie wrote a passionate letter to the New York Times which was published online revealing that the Academy Award winning actress had gone through a mastectomy in order to avoid the risk of breast cancer in her future. The letter is a bold and beautiful move that hopes to empower others to take their health into their own hands.

A quote from the actress reveals a remarkable truth to her circumstances, which may inspire many more people to get to the very “root” of their problems. Jolie discovered she carried the dreadedΒ BRCA1 gene (a gene known to mutate to what we know as breast cancer) and knew what she had to do to ensure living a long and happy life:

I wanted to write this to tell other women that the decision to have a mastectomy was not easy. But it is one I am very happy that I made. My chances of developing breast cancer have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent. I can tell my children that they don’t need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer.

It is reassuring that they see nothing that makes them uncomfortable. They can see my small scars and that’s it. Everything else is just Mommy, the same as she always was. And they know that I love them and will do anything to be with them as long as I can. On a personal note, I do not feel any less of a woman. I feel empowered that I made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity.

The news has sparked a lot of conversation around the world on the subject, and once again, Angelina Jolie shows a maturity and compassion for humanity that is unmatched by any other celebrity in the world. She, is also absolutely stunning.

William Shatner- Captain James Kirk

William Shatner is best known as Captain Kirk in the iconic 1960s sci-fi series (the original, tamer, Battlestar Gallactica), marking his first foray into the world of outer space, extra terrestrials, space ships, and other worldly beings. But in 1977, Shatner released a documentary that would have the Canadian star again looking to the stars, this time for answers.

Based on Erich Von Daniken’s best selling series (his feature film documentary “Chariot of the Gods” was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary in 1970), “Mysteries of the Gods” continued on the popular quest to discover from whence we came. It’s the original “Ancient Aliens“.

Did millions of years ago, visitors from other planets come to Earth and help accelerate our primitive ancestor’s genes to propel civilization as we know it today? Scientists often note how remarkable it is that human civilization went from cave dwelling hunter-gathers to suddenly building slick and sophisticated cultures with engineering that defies the capabilities of today’s most advanced technologies.

It definitely is disturbing to think that we live in a world where we still have not figured out how they moved the stones of the Pyramids?! How far behind are we? Or did ancient people have help from our astronaut ancestors, or worse, giants that literally roamed the Earth?

If not, why do so many “primitive” cultures, even today, still tell legends of giant men who made us “normal” humans seem like crickets? Now I’m starting to sound a bit like Shatner, so instead I’ll simply live you with the video itself.
