Elizabeth Smart Is Well-Spoken, Well-Adjusted

Elizabeth Smart, the Mormon girl who went missing for nine months after she was abducted from her bedroom six years ago by a weirdo handyman was on Oprah today to discuss the aftermath of the ordeal. Today she's 20, and is a junior at BYU as a music major. Considering what she's been through, she's shockingly put together and has a wonderful perspective on what happened to her, saying that while she would never wish the experience on herself or anyone else, she's a better person for it today because it opened her eyes to the world, and she's much less naive.
