Wow. I was going to say she is too young but then saw that she is 24....holy cow how time flies. Best of luck to her and her fiance.
God bless Elizabeth Smart and she has my prayers and best wishes for a very happy and healthy life.
If I were Ed Smart, I would somehow figure out a way to tie Brian David Mitchell to the bumper of their car as they drove away from the church and encourage my new son-in-law to “drive safe, but drive fast!”
That scumbag Mitchell was and remains a waste of oxygen and skin. Ditto for his enabling wife and partner in crime.
Hell is waiting for them with an open, flaming maw.
She seems like a nice young woman. Those comments on the article are really snarky.
I wish we could all send her a couple of bucks a piece from FreeRepublic.
Elizabeth is a beautiful reminder of how we bless ourselves through the forgiveness of those who hurt us and by avoiding bitterness. She is a picture of grace who deserves much happiness. I’m sure she will continue to bring joy to others and therefore will receive joy herself.
Good for her, good for him, best wishes!
Im tell me how
Beautiful woman. I am glad that she seems to have turned out well. I wonder if she is a conservative? I would imagine that at the very least she is Republican.
My Lord... What a gorgeous woman she’s become. I sure hope she has found, or will find, a happy life. The odds were not in her favor.
I was thinking the same thing! Time flies!
Well, she's a Mormon, so she probably likes Mitt Romney. But that's no sin, I guess.
So happy for her, and that she has been able to recover from the horror of her ordeal. Wishing her and her fiance a lifetime of joy together. Kudos to her parents for guiding her through her recovery. Amazing story.
Saw her recently on tv. She’s become involved with helping other young women who’ve had traumatic experiences in their lives. What a way to make lemonade out of lemons. Hope they have a long, wonderful life together and privacy, if they want it, for their special day.
I clicked on the link and what a beautiful, young couple. They look truly in love and very happy. I wish them a wonderful marriage and a truly happy life together.
She has a charity that’s devoted to working with children. I bet you could donate or help with that.
I’m thrilled she’s found someone - if anyone deserves to have a good life, it’s her. I wish them all the best!
I followed the Elisabeth Smart kidnapping from start to finish and was truly astounded when she was recovered alive.
I don’t think I have ever wanted to kill someone so bad as I did her abductor!
I hope she and her love can live some sort of a normal life away from this god foresaken media!
On another note!!!
The recovery of Jaycee Duggard who was kidnapped at the age of 11 years old, and held for 18 years, giving birth to two daughters of her abductor, has me so pissed I could kill the bastard with my bare hands.
If anyone ever deserved their privacy and prayers from us all, these two special ladies do.
May god bless them and protect them forever!
I’m so happy for her...true life is about to finally begin...with love and happiness. She is one strong young lady. God is good.
If I were Ed Smart I’d be thinking “What the hell was I thinking bringing home a bum to scope out my house and my 14-year old daughter?’’.
Just my opinion, but she’s too young, especially with all of her baggage.
