Elizabeth Smart Helps Raise Funds for Gingerbread House

Her abduction in June of 2002 captured the attention and the hearts of people all over the country. For the next nine months, 14-year-old Elizabeth Smart was held hostage — her captors threatening to kill her and her family if she tried to escape. Police were finally able to track her down, free her, and arrest her captors. Now she’s traveling the country to alert others how real the threat of kidnapping and abduction really is. What’s kept her going since her release? Smart says it’s been the support of her family, community, and faith. And she says that demonstrates that there really can be life after a tragic event.  She was in Shreveport to help raise funds for the Gingerbread House — northwest Louisiana’s child advocacy center.
