I hate it when I’m right. Last night when I heard the news of Elizabeth Smart’s return home, I commented on how the whole situation still left me with a bad vibe. Last summer I just had a feeling that there was more to the story. This morning I commented to one of the attorneys at work that after seeing the clip of her walking behind Brian David Mitchell in a veil and face cloth, I wondered if she had been married to him. I hate it when I’m right about things like that.
She has been through a terrible ordeal, and it’s as if she was taken in to a cult or something similar. I am happy to see her reunited with her family, but it will be a long road to a normal life for her.
