Looking at all the great pictures of Elizabeth Smart....well, let's put it this way... I am sure glad I wasn't kidnapped as a kid. There is no way there would have been a media frenzy and 9 month long effort to save me. The parents would have done everything they could, but I don't imagine that I would have had many front page cover stories.
If my parents had to come up with a photo for poster, this school shot would probably have been the only one they found. For some odd reason, people never took a lot of photos of me. They were probably trying to save money on film.
