One has to be impressed with Angelina Jolie’s bravery and courage. A famous actress, known for her beauty, sensuality and sexuality, publically announces that her breasts have been removed. Angelina is an inspiration because, without her breasts, she remains who she is: beautiful, sensual and sexual.

Angelina Jolie has a sense of purpose in life that goes way beyond her looks. She is a moral and political activist who well deserves the adoration of her partner and children. She deserves, as well, the admiration and respect of women around the world.
