George Clooney: Messenger of Peace
Finally, something nice to write about. :-D Not only has he been the sexiest man alive, Oscar Nominee, and all around funny man, but now the United Nations has named George Clooney the “Messenger of Peace” for his work to bring attention to the refugees in Darfur.
The actor is being “recognized for focusing public attention on crucial international political and social issues,” according to U.N. spokeswoman Michele Montas.
Clooney, 46, joins Michael Douglas and musician Yo-Yo Ma as previous celebrity U.N. honorees. Clooney and friend Don Cheadle were given the Peace Summit Award by a group of Nobel Laureates Dec. 13 for their work for Darfur.
With Cheadle and Brad Pitt, Clooney has raised money for refugees through the “Not On Our Watch” charity and helped draw attention to the crisis in Darfur in western Sudan.
I think this is a good thing… but that’s just my opinion.
