I didn't follow the Elizabeth Smart case when it broke several years ago. When she was found by police nine months after she was abducted was absolutely incredible. I honestly did not believe they would find her alive. Fast forward to today to the trial of Brian David Mitchell. I've read some of the news accounts of her testimony against Mr. Mitchell. All I can say is, "Wow! You go girl!"
I cannot imagine the hell that she went through for nine months. I cannot believe the fortitude that she now has to testify in front of her former captor. Her story is amazing. Mr. Mitchell is a disgusting man. I hope the prosecution can bring a strong enough case that he isn't insane and that the jury sees what kind of a man he really is.
To Ms. Smart: Be brave, and be strong. I wish you the very best for you in your life.
