Say What? Elizabeth Smart Doesn't Let Trials Hold Her Back

"I have just never let it hold me back, and I have gone on to do everything, so far, that I have wanted to do, and I think that's so important. We all have our trials, and we all experience hard times, but I don't think we should ever let it disable us from what we want to do."
