A smart move for Smart!

Elizabeth Smart was famously kidnapped from her home in Utah and kept prisoner for 8 months. Now, she is putting her terrifying to good use as ABC News has hired her to appear on the network as a contributor to missing persons stories. ABC News spokesperson Julie Townsend announced the news this morning and added:

"She’ll help our viewers better understand missing person stories from someone with the perspective to know what a family experiences when a loved one goes missing."

Elizabeth herself did not release a statement on her new job, but the spokesperson added that this career move is all about "looking ahead, not looking back at her own story." Elizabeth is slated to start in just a few weeks.

Congrats on the new job, Elizabeth. We think this will be an excellent way for you to further come to peace with what happened to you. You might even be able to save countless others from the same fate. We're proud of you, girl!

    "…Now, she is putting her terrifying to good use…" So what you are saying is, she 'terrifies' people? Does no one proof read at your site before they post?

    Re: white_is_ugly – You're the vile piece of shit type of person that SHOULD be murdered. After what that poor girl had to endure, no one should say shit that hateful. I wish you'd come around me with that shit, i'd pull out my gun and teach you something about WHITE bitches real quick.

    good for her for claiming her life and moving on
    can not be easy
    and she is a Mormon
    has a university degree
    and has done missionary work
    a poised and compassionate young lady and a great harpist

    Being from Utah, myself and others are sick of hearing about her. I say give the job to the chick who was held for 18 years.
