Elizabeth Smart at Women’s Health Event

March 6th, 2013 - By Steve James

 

Kidnapping victim and survivor Elizabeth Smart was the guest speaker Tuesday night at the 7th Annual Healthy Woman Expo and Health Fair sponsored by Volunteer Community Hospital in Martin.

Smart was abducted from her Salt Lake City home back in 2002 at the age of 14. After a nationwide search, she was finally found nine months later in the company of her kidnappers.

She now travels the country telling her story and giving speeches on ways to overcome adversity in life.

Smart spoke to WCMT before the event, and said she does speaking engagements to raise awareness about sexual abuse, and give ways people can overcome tragedies in their lives.

She said the point she always emphasizes is the fact that hardships don’t last forever and there’s always hope.

Smart also oversees the Elizabeth Smart Foundation, to help prevent and educate individuals about crimes against children.
