Elizabeth Smart Is Getting Engaged


One of the better pieces of news I heard yesterday is that former kidnap victim, Elizabeth Smart got engaged last weekend. This is some pretty exciting news. This is a woman to me who has overcome so much and seems from what I have been able to see to be a strong, don't take any kind of crap from anyone kind of woman. She is also a very private person so the public engagement announcement took me by surprise. The family tried to hide the name of the groom, but it took the Salt Lake City newspaper about five seconds to find out the name of the groom. Wedding registry at Williams Sonoma. Cheese slicers for everyone!

I wish her the very best since she has already experienced the worst. She is an example of goodness triumphing over evil. She and her family have behaved with extraordinary grace. Best wishes to all of them.

I still remember coming home from high school in 2002 and finding out they had found her. I wish her the best.

Many well wishes to the happy couple & families of.

She seems like an incredible young woman. Certainly someone I'd look to for strength when I'm feeling self-loathing.

Best wishes to Elizabeth and congratulations to the groom. He is marrying an amazing young woman.

Congrats to her! It's always nice to hear about someone who has survived something so vicious and are still able to move on with their lives and grow. I've always respected her, especially after she debated Nancy Grace and got her to shut up for a second or two.

Go, Elizabeth! May you and your fiance have a wonderful life together, and may you get all the damn cheese slicers you want!

She is the poster child for putting the horrible past behind you, picking yourself up and going on to live your life well. I am so happy for her and wish her only the best life has to offer.

Not often you get to see happy endings, lets hope she has a normal life going forward

ABlake said...

Bless her heart. This is a woman who never sought the spotlight but has handled it very well and with astounding humility. She doesn't want a reality show or a movie deal, she just wants a normal life.
That's class
I wish her all the best in the world.

When I saw this yesterday I was worried it was too soon. To me it seemed like it was just yesterday. But I guess it has been long enough and she does seem so strong.

Folks of the Mormon faith really have this vibe of serenity about them. [I know .. shocking coming from the likes of me!] And Elizabeth seems to have it, that is for sure. I hope she will be happy and healthy and have a long, happy marriage filled with nothing but joy.

Good for her!

I'm so happy to come to this site and see all the positive support for Elizabeth. Other sites have some truly horrible people on them.

Congrats Elizabeth! We're all rooting for you.
