Knox took the podium noting with a laugh that she had been immediately warned to remember to speak in English now that she was home, “I’ve been having problems with that.” Adding that watching the plane descend made her feel that “everything wasn’t real,” she had simple words for the press: “thank you to everyone who has believed in me, who has defended me… my family is the most important thing right now.” She did not take questions from the press.
