Higinio Ochoa sent us an amazing letter

I wish I could rally for smarter schools and bigger budgets. I wish my voice could call for the freedoms we were promised to be relies. I wish I had the knowledge and strength to change the perception of those still blind. I wish these simply so I wouldn’t need to wish.

I will always have my past but now I am ready for my future. I am often asked what I have learned in prison. Besides pain, suffering and a loneliness unmatched anywhere else I have learned little. I have seen the cost of freedom and I am paying forward. I learned why our government is failing and our police forced to fight their own. The answer is to me as clear as it is simple: Human Nature.

We have allowed the empowerment of people for durations that can last lifetimes but who’s appointment was taken out of our hands. We have given up our voices so that others may choose for us. We have allowed the very freedoms we take for granted to be handed over without a fight. We have allow child rapists to serve less time then those who fight for freedom and we ask for change instead of demand it. The same people putting low end drug dealers away are allowed to fund the ones who ship it to them. Our judicial system is flawed because while we expect it to protect us we allow others to choose its enforcement.

Our government has erased our expectations to privacy by pushing fear.
Our government has intruded on every medium of free speech we have even going as far as to define where it is allowed.
Our government is allowed to police our morals because we have turned over that power to them.
Our voice is being silenced because WE have allowed it to be so.

This is what I have learned.
I am not here to find answers to problems that have plagued us for generations. At my roots I am but a soldier. I am tired from my fight and my family has suffered because of it. I am often asked what do I need and how can you help.

The answer plainly is:
Money and books, is this not the staple of any prison stint?

The truth is a lot more grey:
I need my family. I need to provide. I need my freedoms. I need the rights I fought for to be given back when I am finally free. I need to educate the world. I need to feed those in need. I need justice and fairness. I need love and compassion. I need understanding and willingness. Above it all however, I need someone else to step in and take this weak soldiers place.

I will always be in debt to those who have helped me and my family through this all but there are those who I will never be able to pay back. My loving wife and children. Can you look around you and say that after all we have fought for that even a day without could be traded for a cause? I would do what I did again not because of what I know but because of what I didn’t. I never knew a love so deep or a bond so strong. I hope that others who choose to fight do so with knowledge and understanding. It is our last chance to make a lasting change because the next generation will not have the rights or chances we have now.

My many thanks and love to the many fallen soldiers on the path to freedom.
May our loss truly help those who need inspiration.
