Elizabeth Smart Returns To Location Where She Was Kidnapped And Raped Over A Decade Ago! Watch HERE!
It's been more than a decade since Elizabeth Smart was kidnapped from her Utah home and help captive for 9 months, and she has come a LONG way since then!
Now 25 years old, she has written a book about her nightmarish time with Brian David Mitchell and his wife Wanda Barzee, titled My Story.
But in addition to giving horrific details about the horrible period in her life, she showed true bravery by returning to the actual location where she was brutally beaten and repeatedly raped for nearly a year.
Elizabeth's strength is truly unparalleled as she recounts the tales from her haunting past, and it's even more amazing to see how much she has been able to accomplish since then.
It's great to see how far she has come over the past 11 years, and we really can't wait to see what she does next!
Ch-ch-check out the inspirational interview (above)!
Continuing that support, Kobe has expanded his words and admiration for such courage, and has spoken at An Unforgettable Evening benefiting EIF's Women's Cancer Research Fund, saying that he believes Jason has paved the way for other gay athletes to be open about their sexuality!
Here's what he said:
After nearly two years, Pennsylvania mom Kalli Atteya has finally been reunited with her son Niko!
In 2011, Niko's father disappeared with the boy while on a trip to Egypt. Kalli later learned the entire trip was a ruse to kidnap Niko and raise him as a traditional Muslim. Kalli says:
We can't even begin to express how incredibly moved we are by the dignity, candor, and bravery Valerie Harper has maintained while publicly discussing her terminal brain cancer diagnosis.
The 73-year-old star of The Mary Tyler Moore Show recently discovered that she has leptomeningeal carcinomatosis, which is a very rare condition that happens when cancer cells break into the fluid-filled membrane surrounding the brain, and even though she's expected to only live for another three months, she has remained a positive attitude while embracing the time on this Earth she has left, and even filmed an appearance on The Doctors to bring attention to this heart-wrenching condition!
Yet, in spite of all of this, the actress has still found the time to reach out to her fans, and took to Facebook yesterday to thank everyone for their well-wishes and concern!
If not for the quick-thinking and bravery of Kaitlin Roig, there is a very real possibility the unfathomable casualty count at Sandy Hook Elementary School last Friday could have been even higher.
When the shooting began, the lovely young first-grade teacher quickly ushered her 15 students into the classroom closet and urged them to be quiet.
In an interview chilling enough to make even the most world-weary cynic cry, Diane Sawyer discusses with Kaitlin (above) the unforgettable moments between when Adam Lanza fired his first gunshots and when the police arrived to safely lead her children outside.
This shooting was masterminded by one heinous villain, but, as details from this tragedy slowly come into focus, we're realizing Newtown, Connecticut is a community filled with dozens of astonishing heroes.
We honor the courage and selflessness of those teachers, administrators, first responders, and classmates who helped prevent even more parents from burying their children this week.
Rain??? RAIN?!?!?! Alec Baldwin don't care about no stinking rain!
The proud pet owner and actor braved the elements of Hurricane Sandy to make sure he didn't skip out on his doggie duties.
So that meant walking his super ADORBz and teeny-tiny pups in the rain….
With JUST a sweater and jeans!
This definitely earns Pet Owner of the Year points in our book!
