Elizabeth Smart's kidnapper gets life in prison

After Smart was found, there were a lot of jokes about how she just didn't try hard enough to escape. They're not as funny once you read what her life was like as Brian Mitchell's prisoner. Still, it sounds like she has managed to move on with her life, in some fashion.

"I think one of the biggest ways to overcome any trial in life, to heal from any kind of experience, is by helping those around you, because by lifting those around you up, you end up lifting yourself up as well," Smart said.
