“We start with a conversation every day and do our Pledge of Allegiance, and then we continue our conversation for a few minutes — just let each other know, if anyone needs anything, just to contact each other,” said Donna Johnson.

“It’s earlier, and then we can get all of my work done,” one of Johnson’s sons said.

“It’s a good way to start you day, saying something for your country,” another one of Johnson’s sons said.

They’ll continue the morning routine and pledging allegiance to the flag, while also pledging to look after one another to get through this.
