Atlanta hostage story

Inspiring story posted on the FoxNews site about the woman (Ashley Smith) taken hostage in her home by Brian Nichols, the accused rapist who went on a killing rampage at the Fulton County Courthouse in Atlanta last week. This woman's religious faith,a nd the fact that she trusted in that faith and lived that faith, got her through what had to have been harrowing ordeal when she was kidnaped by Mr. Nichols.

I first read about this remarkable woman via a link to lucianne.com posted on the Power Line page. One of the commenters to the posting said something that I thought was bizarre, that the poster hoped she would visit the man in prison. Then, after reading her story, I thought the same thing: I hope she goes to his trial and visits him a few times in prison, sort of like the Pope visiting his would-be assassin, Mehmet Ali Agca. She doesn't have to, of course. She's a heroine anyway. She's already shown remarkable strength and courage.
