This Is Just Really Sad
“Why don’t they want me?” Elizabeth Smart, on wanting to play herself in a CBS movie about her kidnapping last year.
Btw, I think it’s totally tasteless of the parents to be running around doing one interview after another to promote their book about the kidnapping. Personally, I don’t think they should have written a book. Or even sold the movie rights to the story. At least not now. This child has a rocky road ahead of her and I think they (parents and rest of family) should be spending time with her away from the spotlight trying to get back in a normal routine. And oh yeah, maybe set her up with some one on one therapy. I think I read somewhere that the parents were against it. How selfish and shortsighted of them.

yeah, it’s a little strange for a kidnapping/rape victim to want to relive the event and replay it over and over.
As far as her parents pimping their daughters story, hey, that’s America 😕

there’s really something wrong with people nowadays. they’re just adding to any abuse she endured. she should be taken from them.

I thought it was frightening that they noted that she was “just the same” as before. Makes one wonder whether she’s needed theraphy all along. I think her parents are a little odd to begin with.
