Maybe they're in a situation that was similar to the one that I was in." - Elizabeth Smart, talking to The Associated Press about her just-released book, “My Story,” in which she talks about her kidnapping. Smart was kidnapped by a couple when she was 14 years old and was sexually and emotionally abused by her captors.
