Alice Marie Johnson thanks Kim Kardashian for her efforts to return her to her family.
For the last few months, Kim Kardashian has been advocating for prison reform and, especially, the release of Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old grandmother who is currently serving a life sentence for a non-violent, first-time drug offense. Yesterday, the reality star met with President Donald Trump at the White House in what Trump has called a "great meeting." While the results of Kim's attempt to free Johnson have not yet been considered, the inmate is extremely appreciative of all that Kim has done for her. Writing a letter to Kardashian West, Johnson was thankful and sincere as Kim showed it off on her Instagram story.
The woman wrote, "There are no words strong enough to express my deep and heartfelt gratitude. Ms. Kardashian, you are literally helping to save my life and restore me to my family. I was drowning and you have thrown me a life jacket and given me hope that this Life jacket I’m serving may one day be taken off." Johnson went on to note the significance of what Kim is attempting to pull off, saying, "There are defining moments in history that have shaped the destiny of this nation. I believe that we are part of a defining moment."
Johnson went on to compare Kim's involvement to Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat on a bus in 1955. She ended her letter with, "A million trillion thanks!! May God's blessing rest upon you and yours. THE BATTLE IS ON!" Kim has noted that she is "optimistic" about Alice Marie Johnson's future after her meeting.
