As joyous as it is for everyone to see such a happy ending, these women – who were kidnapped as girls – need to begin their road to recovery. They need space. They will talk when they are ready. Right now, people need to give them this time. Pushing for them to speak to the public is unnecessary and damaging to them. Let them get used to life. So much has changed in society since they were kidnapped: cell phones, computers, the Internet, and technology overall. Remember, 2 of them were still in school. Our lives have continued, while they were stuck. I am sure they are very overwhelmed. Let’s be happy that they are alive and out of that house of horrors. Keep them in your hearts and think of them for a bit everyday, but let them adjust and recover. They need to find a good place for themselves.
