Mario I am very happy for you, especially now more than ever to see you out here on the outside with your family and loved ones. Reading "The Returning of Freedom" was very touching, it brings me joy to see the many things you have come to accomplish in just one year. Now Mario you have many more obstacles to overcome in your fight for justice but don't you ever give up. Keep fighting for what you deserve. Suerte amigo! You have my full love and support. Like you always used to tell me, "Si Se Puede."

Mucha Suerte to you and your family...

Love from your good friend,

Maetzin

I am a mexican criminal lawyer, I saw the documentary about your case and I found it really impressive for everything (moslty for the courage of you, your mother and the sister).
A very painful situation not always brings an enormous happiness and I am prety sure that you are aware of this. Becuase this things happens, I perform pro bono work for people sentenced unfairly or victims of crimes who can not afford a lawyer. So, in case my help could be useful for any unfair situation that you know, please let me know. Stay motivated Mario y porque no hicieron ese documental con subtitulos en español?, traten de venderlo con subtitulos en español; es interesante dar a conocer tu caso.
Congratulations & bravo for your victory!,

Hola Mario,Como esta? Congrats on your release! Libere en el ultimo! I watched your documentary today and was very touched by it like most people. I have a very good friend who is in the same situation you were in. Mexican, born and raised in Il. He was 20 at the time and now is 27 also charged with murder which he did not commit. Same lay out like yours.He got Life without the possibility of parole in IL. State Prison. He wants to appeal but has no way of doing his research. Do you have any suggestions what he shoud do? He cant get into the libary and it seems they always being put on lock down.If you happen to know how to contact Mr. Ernesto Elizondo, could you please let me know? Any suggestion would be appreciate it. Good luck to you and your family. El dios le bendice!

Mario ~ I saw the documentary last night and I was amazed and impressed with calm and perseverance in such an awful situation. The writing samples I heard in the documentary moved me and I hope that you continue to write. If you published a book, I promise I would read it. Good luck to you.

Mario, I watched your story for the first time in my writing class and it amazed me on how you were strong and kept a good attitude. You inspired me to just be grateful for what i have been given. Mario when i get one of your books i promise tears will start coming down but i really want to collect your books and just read them over and over and watch the dvd over and over. Thank you for sharing your story with all of us.

Debbie

God Bless you and yours

Hello Mario,

I watched your story in the form of a documentary, and I was profoundly affected by it. You have the true mark of what is at the core of our human existence, strength and unwavering belief in truth.

Thank you for sharing your life with the rest of us.

I, watched the documentary on your story last night and again this evening because I had to share with my 14 year old and I have to say, I cried through most of it(twice). It was very frustrating for me to see how time after time appeals or motions your lawyers submitted would be rejected. Not to mention the attacks you suffered while incarcerated, not knowing if you were okay and that the personnel at the Prison were sketchy with your status and whereabouts THAT REALLY INFURIATED ME!

Your endurance, strength, will power and optimism thought it all shows your character and it is an admirable one.
You young man, have a great spirit.
Thank you and the crew (all involved) for sharing your story and making us aware of the repercussions of a neglectful system.
By the way, what ever happened to the D.A.'s countersuite?

Blessings to you and yours.
My Best,
Azul

Hi,
I watched your story for the first time in my writing class and it amazed me on how you were strong and kept a good attitude.

Heriberto  Vizcarra

Sorprendente. You, your family, friends and supporters have done something that is almost impossible, conquering the deeply failed american judiciary system. I can't begin to express my admiration for you, that you seemed to have kept the goodness inside in spite of the despair and corruption around you, that you have lost so many years, so many important phases of your life. I will pray that you have come to be a better man.
Keep it up, hermano.

Danielle

Mario,

I saw your story today and was tremendously moved. Your story, more specifically what you were forced to endure, angered me. Your spirit inspired me. Thank you, for your tenacity, for your faith, and for never giving up on yourself. You blessed me.

i just finished watching your story and had to see if i could find you on line . Icouldnt stop crying while i watched your story . im sorry you had to suffer the pain and the feeling of that god had forgot about you . many of us would have sought the company of others in the prison . and got caught up . but you are a very strong person . and didnt stray from your calling . i belive that god knows what he is doing and has a perpose for all of us and sometimes we can only find it threw hardships. i hurt still for your mother who lost her little boy . as a mother my self i feel her pain.thank you for the experience i will always have you and your family in my prayers
