"Just ask yourself to care. If you see something that looks wrong or amiss, speak out. You might be wrong, but you might just save someone's life."
This is the message Jaycee Dugard is sending in her just-released Public Service Announcement for the JAYC Foundation, her organization which provides support and services to families that are recovering from abduction and the aftermath of other traumatic experiences.
Dugard was pulled from her South Lake Tahoe street in 1991 when she was just 11 years old. Nancy and Phillip Garrido, her kidnappers, then drove her to their Antioch home where she was held captive for 18 years. She received a settlement from the State of California last year for $20 million after her family alleged that lapses in the state's correctional system failed to prevent her kidnapping and subsequent captivity, which included repeated sexual abuse that resulted in two pregnancies.
