While I can't imagine ever stealing anything, much less doing it with my children, I hope this incident will mark a turning point in Ms. Johnson's life, and the lives of her daughters and the daughter's friend. If they need support, let's hope they find agencies set up to assist those in need, like the Ark or the Salvation Army.
