Angelina Jolie can't help but get emotional while discussing the conflict in Syria and the thousands of displaced children who have moved into refugee camps in Jordan.
The actress made her fourth visit to the camps since the conflict began five years ago, and she couldn't help but imagine what it would be like for her own children to experience such tragedy.
"There are children here who remember no life other than this harsh, desert environment and barbed wire fences," she said, talking to reporters as a special envoy for the UN's refugee agency on Friday. "There are teens here who bear terrible physical and mental wounds of the conflict—over half of all refugees in Jordan are under 18. My own children are of that age."
