Shiloh Jolie-Pitt turns six years of age, Sunday (North American time). This explains why at the time of writing, the third-generation Hollywood star is the no.1 celebrity name rating on this blog.
It only seems like yesterday that little Shiloh arrived at the Cottage Medi-Clinic Hospital in Swakopmund, Namibia. Her birth was similar to the days when Prince William and Prince Harry Windsor were born, in regards to the amount of fascination that people gave Shiloh’s arrival in the world. She instantly became one of the world’s most favorite magazine cover girls from the time young Shiloh arrived.
Observations, while living in Hollywood are that Shiloh’s birth caused the city to melt like fluffy marshmallows in cups of sweet hot chocolate. An aura of kindness and joy swept across Los Angeles. The dynasty of Hollywood’s star system shined over the city. (Hollywood actually really does care about stuff like that).
The peace Shiloh’s birth news brought to The City of Angels really did happen. In a quirky way, the child was like a satellite of peace from Namibia. Guys at the office in the Universal Building in North Hollywood, bragged about donating to Angelina’s favorite charities in Africa (guilt money) and all the thin-stick Hollywood girls in the neighborhood rushed out to get puppies that they’d names like “me-me” [sic] and Chloe. I stayed in the home of Papa Elie, a California proud patriarch, who was married to the gracious daughter of a Kentucky Senator. Margaret and Elie were founding members of the infamous Sierra Hiking Club. In his late 80′s, Papa Elie (whose mother Ramza had lived to a young 110), was nearing 90. This was a remarkable feat because due to a fire on a train, as a girl she’d missed her passage aboard the Titanic, days before it sunk. As Papa was of Hasbaya Lebanese and Canadian origin, home-made hummus, promegranites and copious amounts of fresh luscious fruit of California, defined our home’s daily diet while we watched Quiz Shows on TV. Dude still went to the gym three days a week too. Lol!
Papa Elie of California taught me that happiness happens when you choose it to, each day. He lived to make check-out girls working at superettes where he got his fruit from each day, smile. His own constant smile, a living witness of his faith in God. During these days staying with Papa Elie in Walt Disney’s hood, I worked at the entertainment red carpet events office with Jodi Hannah – a producer of Extreme Days -an extreme sports action-packed documentary. Hannah has a producing partner in Christchurch City, New Zealand. Jodi doubled too as a humanitarian mother who prayed each day (in the office) for lesser fortunate children to have a better life of opportunity in the USA before she began her work day. A remarkable person that works with Fortune 500 company sponsors, she creates events from the heart that do this. So with an Eli and a Hannah ever constant, the year Shiloh Jolie-Pitt was born, was a surreal moment, I’ll never forget.
The name Shiloh itself is also of significance in Jewish history as it was the name of the place where Samuel, Israel’s ancient prophet child was raised by Eli, the high preist of Israel at the temple. At a young age, the child Samuel would hear from God at Shiloh. Samuel went on to pray prayers that held back disasters and enemy onslaughts against Israel all of his days. He also was a judge and kingmaker. It was a time in history where people could not get could spiritual guidance easily in uncertain times (eg: they did not hear ‘the word of God’ in that time). So at a pivotal time in history the story goes: ”And the LORD appeared again at Shiloh, because the LORD revealed Himself to Samuel at Shiloh by the word of the LORD.” Clarity returned to Israel’s people in murky times again.
Wayne Blank of Keyway.Ca websites defines Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s name or origin as being: “After the Israelites crossed The Jordan River into the Promised Land under the leadership of Joshua, The Tabernacle, with The Ark Of The Covenant inside, was established at Shiloh. The name means peaceful, or tranquil, and no doubt it was with The Lord’s Presence. No place on earth could have been more secure. It was “God’s country,” and they were “God’s people.”" Or, in other words, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt is named after the place where peace totally jammed.
Her birth is perhaps a reminder that peace comes when you pray it into being each day and choose happiness by living life more peacefully with a smile.
[Happy Birthday SJP].

“True Hollywood fact: When Jodi Hannah gives you a hug, her love for the world, radiates heat from her heart like fire to touch the world, and make an uplifting difference”–Horiwood Today.
On IMDB, film producer Jodi Hannah wife of director Eric Hannah (director of the latino friendly rom com film, Meet Me In Miami, is up 240% in popularity this week! She’s a hot honey. Just spotted today in Beverly Hills. You’d never know, Jodi has had two children, a daughter Rain Hannah and son Wind Hannah, and she looks like she just stepped off the fashion runway… Well, the sun-kissed beach runway version of California, that is. So pretty.
Jodi Hannah also does amazing film distribution strategies, across America and in California when she works on film projects, that have a unique ability to feed the hungry in City communities.
Love her. She’s a believer in creating uplifting entertainment with spirit, producing courageous extreme sports documentary film as displayed in her film Extreme Days, and Lifting Up America too. Go girl! :)
Jodi is all about lives being touched: Here’s a report of a Hollywood film premiere event Jodi and Eric were a part of: “If you attend one of our movie premiere events you will see hundreds of lives being touched. Here are just some of the many responses to our Hollywood premiere.
From Andrew Wolfberg, Attorney at Law, volunteer for Jewish Big Brothers/Big Sisters:
“My ‘little brother’ and his mother have had a difficult past few months especially after he was diagnosed with Ataxia Telangiectasia (A-T). I have never seen him smile as much as I did at your event. He especially enjoyed his ride in a huge green [Interstate Battery] limousine.”
