Kim and Alice finally meet.
Yesterday Kim Kardashian flew from Los Angeles to Memphis to finally meet Alice Marie Johnson in person. After seven months of working with her attorney, Ivanka Trump, and other government officials Kim met with Donald Trump, coincidentally on Alice's birthday, to plead with the President to pardon Alice for her involvement in a non-violent drug ring. “It became this mission that I just didn’t want to give up,” Kim said.
Kim and Alice sat down with the Today Show to talk about the journey in full. Alice admittedly said that when she found out Kim Kardashian was working to get her freed, she had no idea who she was, having been locked up for 20 years. “As soon as I found out who she was, I started getting every magazine I could find,” she said. “I started reading everything that I could about her. And everyone was amazed. And I was amazed, too.”
Alice now keeps a photo of Kim in her bible, that is a page ripped out of a tabloid magazine. "'Thank you' is not big enough. I think I have to walk it out. I have to walk my 'thank you' out. I have to live it out for her, for my family, for the supporters," she said.
As for the future of Alice, she plans on helping those just like her. "I plan on continuing to magnify this issue. And I can't stop. I can't stop. I've lived it," she explained. "I've walked with them. I have cried with them. My life is completely intertwined forever with those who were left behind. So it can't end here."
