I'm not surprised she came. After all those years hidden away in a hole with everyone assuming she's dead, she probably wants the entire world to see her, to know she exists and she's alive.

Why does the headline read "Shocks"?? Why is it "shocking" that she resumes her life? Would a better title not have been "Woman takes back her life", or something like that? Thanks, Tribune, for feeding into the minds of the other crazies who love to "imagine" what it was like to control a woman that way, and to feed into the mindset that the victim "somehow asked for it", both of which immediately come to mind with your headline. But it sure did urge viewers to click on the story to see what she did that was so shocking, I suppose, creating more revenue for your paper. Oh, I get it now.............

It's surely a big responsibility for these ladies to come out in public like this, but it's important not just for them, but for the public to get a chance to validate that there's no shame and there's a better future ahead. I wish victims of all debilitating crime had the chance for some sort of public validation like this. It must be helpful in putting the past behind.
