Alhamdullilah. I always held hope Jill Carroll would survive. I don’t know why but I felt I could relate to her and since January 7 I’ve prayed for her as I thought of her, her parents, and the three months of hell they endured. I am floored at criticism for her statements while in captivity. She says it was duress…. why does she need to justify it? How cruel to accuse her just hours after her release for what she did to survive! What would they have done in her shoes? I am thankful for her release and pray for the quick release of others still in captivity.
