Elizabeth Smart Interview

I am sure all of us are familiar with the story of Elizabeth Smart, if not go see the movie.

I just think she is a remarkable woman, who is an exemplar of overcoming and moving on after a tragic life experience.

In a world that makes it so easy to play the role of victim, and maintain that role, she is truly making, or has made the shift from victim to survivor.  If anyone in this world has a reason to "play" the victim card, she does.  But she doesn't, and it is just inspiring.

This is an interview done by the Salt Lake Tribune.  I admit, I have seen better recorded interviews at a high-school level. However, it is great to just hear her speak about her experience in France, her past, and what she is looking forward to.
