63-year-old grandmother Alice Marie Johnson was on Wednesday released from prison after her life sentence was commuted by President Donald Trump.

Reality star Kim Kardashian West had visited Trump in the White House a week ago to seek Johnson’s commutation, and she shared that the commutation has been granted.

Johnson reunited with her family on Wednesday, and it was the most joyous scene ever!

According to CNN, speaking to reporters outside the scene, Johnson said:

I feel like my life is starting over again.

I started screaming, and crying and jumping. I think I lost it for a moment.

I want to tell Kim, my angel, that you never gave up on me. You never gave up your fight. You were relentless and it has paid off beautifully for me and my family on this day.

It means that someone finally saw me, someone finally heard me, someone had mercy on me — and that was President Trump, and so I’m so thankful for him and what he’s done.

I am going to make you proud that you gave me this second chance in life. And I will not disappoint the American public or the world that has so much faith in me.

    But sincerely the justice system is funny. Messed up sometimes sef. A first time offender on a drug charge gets life without the possibility of parole but the scumbag that killed Trayvon Martin is walking free. Sigh.

    I’m happy for her. Thanks to Kim, the Donald and everyone else involved in her release
