On March 14, Salt Lake City Celebrated the recovery of Elizabeth Smart. The event was rather important in that it occurred after months and months of bad news on the economic and international fronts.

For people work on social welfare and missing children cases, the event was especially joyous, since so many cases end dismally.

Having a weakness for big public events, I decided to check out the celebrations and attended the event. I arrived a bit late. Mayor Rocky Anderson gave a speech followed by an impassioned plea from Ed Smart to support the AMBER Alert project for missing kids.

Several organizations donated food (hot dogs, pizza, cake). There was a cake, balloons and fire works.

The evening ended with several songs from Utah Jazz's Thurl Bailey. Overall, the evening was an enjoyable, emotionally uplifting event.
