Angelina Jolie is expanding on her open essay about the coronavirus pandemic with Time magazine.
The -year-old actress and philanthropist talked with Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, California’s Surgeon General, about the risk that coronavirus poses to vulnerable children in unsafe living conditions in a video chat.
The physician emphasized the importance of people reaching out to each other.
“I think it is so important that people hear that,” Angelina shared. “To love each other, check in with each other. Be there, be a support group, keep your eyes open whether you are a teacher or a friend.”
She continued, “I really do hope people hear this, and they do reach out, and they do pay more attention, and they are not sitting in a moment when they think, ‘Well maybe, but it’s not my business.’ Because those kids aren’t going to school right now, and teachers can’t see the bruises and people aren’t identifying what is happening within some homes.”
