Say What? Elizabeth Smart Doesn't Let Trials Hold Her Back

Say What? Elizabeth Smart Doesn't Let Trials Hold Her Back


"I have just never let it hold me back, and I have gone on to do everything, so far, that I have wanted to do, and I think that's so important. We all have our trials, and we all experience hard times, but I don't think we should ever let it disable us from what we want to do."

— Elizabeth Smart, the girl who was abducted from her bedroom when she was 14 and held captive and raped for nine months, explains that a determined spirit cannot be crushed. Elizabeth spoke yesterday at a panel about "Overcoming the Unimaginable" — something she has truly done.

The world is a better place because she's in it - I'm not sure I could survive such a horrific experience and come out the other side. What a courageous and inspirational young woman she is!

She really is an inspiration. I'm glad the horrible experience she went through didn't rob her of the ability to live the rest of her life.
