Photos: Rescued women thriving

The three women held captive in a Cleveland house before escaping a year ago Tuesday have spent their first year of freedom in nearly a decade learning to drive, taking boxing lessons and cherishing time with their families. Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus both said Monday that they are thankful and growing in many ways. Michelle Knight said on the "Today" show that she forgives the man who kidnapped and tortured her and the two other women.
