HOSTAGE SITUATIONS: My father was illegally detained for three months in eastern Turkey in 1975

We were expatriates, my dad in the oil business. My mother, my very young brother and I (only 15) were alone on the Syrian border. The State Dept did nothing. Those three months made me into the woman capable of running this country. My heart goes out to those who will go to sleep tonight hoping somebody is still looking for them.

As President, I would make it a priority to get these people home.
