Maria on her interview with Shoshana:
"Shoshana made an impression in our country and around the world when she became the first female POW. We all remember her face, that look of shock when she was rescued by American soldiers from her Iraqui captors. Hearing her voice now as she spoke from her heart about the ordeal was fascinating and it gave me a look into being a woman in war and the inner strengnth you need to survive under any circumstance."
