Diplomatic missions are part of the relation between different states. Their role is very important as official representation to maintain good relation in an globalized and interconnected world, even more than by the past. The use of diplomacy is the way to avoid war between states. It's especially important when crisis arise and a diplomatic solution is needed to avoid a conflict, or the end of diplomatic relation between two countries. There are many types of diplomats, ranked in a hierarchical system alike the army. In the army the grade of general is the highest. In diplomatic relations the highest ranked diplomat is the ambassador. Here we are going to talk about a special kind of diplomat called "super envoy". The super envoy is not a permanent position. It is used for a special mission of high risk. It doesn't have to be in representation of a state, it can be in representation of an international organization or an institution. This person has to be selected carefully for the success of the mission.

Angelina is a super envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), an agency of the United Nations. Civilian populations are the main victims in armed conflicts. Most of the time they have nothing to do with the war, they don't even want it. But they are the most vulnerable actors in armed conflicts. They often have to flee, and if lucky end up in a refugee camp. Angelina was chosen as super envoy to help and protect refugees. She has been involved for some years by now, and was given authority as an official spokesperson to address this particular problem to the mass media and governments. She is not a full-time diplomat. Super Envoy don't have to be. But she is surely the right person for the job as she is a global star. She has a reach "Beyond Border" as refugee crisis is an international problem.

Wars around the world are "Taking Lives". All the refugees are "Lookin' to Get Out" of the situation they are trapped in. If the "Original Sin" was about knowing the difference between good and bad. The "Worst Sin" of humanity is doing war, which is nothing more than mass killing and destruction. There have been so many wars in human history, that it wouldn't be exaggerated to say: humans practice war like an universal sport. This is why a "Human Tale" is much worse than a "Shark Tale". We call a shark when someone is able to kill by instinct. But humans don't kill by instinct, they plan it, it's premeditated. At least in a war. Who would go to war without preparation and a good strategy? Sharks are programmed to kill for feeding themselves, they react strongly to blood. Humans are different, they want to own and dominate. They are more machiavellian, nastier. "Life, or Something Like It" has no meaning for war criminals (governments who decide to start a war). Life of the many killed has no meaning to them, they just want to reach their political, geopolitical and economic goals, as war is a huge business.

"A Mighty Heart" like Angelina "Wanted" to save all the refugees in the world. But the "Maleficent" evil of war, the darkest side of humanity won't let her. Her "Unbroken" spirit will make her last till the end. But the reality is cruel as she cannot save the world, "Playing God" is not human. "By the Sea" these days, one can see too many refugees trying to escape a land with no future, from Africa to Europe. "In the Land of Blood and Honey", where honey turned into blood. It's "Hell's Kitchen", there's no food in the fridge during war. And at any time a bomb can explode at your face and your are "Gone in 60 Seconds", or even less. When a country is destroyed by war, "Love Is All There Is" left. Who are the real responsible behind any wars? The governments, the armies, the arms industry lobbies...The complex reality is that which can be asserted "Without Evidence" can be dismissed without evidence. And they all get away, which is the sad conclusion of human justice about war crimes.

As a spokesperson, Angelina's role is more about showing to the world how refugees struggle for survival and get some change in politics to stop the war and find a permanent solutions for the people she takes under her wing. She is like the pope himself, asking the people in position to change the world to do it. As a moral leader, she is the consciousness and the example to follow. She is the inspiration world leaders (governments) often lack.

"We have a responsibility to be aware of others."

Good to say in an over selfish and individualistic modern society.

"I have so much in my life. I want to be of value to the world."

Good to say in a world where money and personal safety and material abundance have too much value.

"Refugees have done more for my heart and my spirit than I can ever express in words."

Good to say when people who have lost everything got only their heart to give you, the most valuable thing in the whole universe.

"Different is good. When someone tells you that you are different, smile and hold your head up and be proud."

Good to say when most of the people in her situation would just enjoy their money, and at best make donations for a good cause.

"I've been reckless, but I'm not a rebel without a cause"

Good to say when the biggest causes need reckless rebels like her.

"So, goodnight Angelina. You follow your heart, and millions of people follow you. But sadly, money and power will always follow money and power first."
