Gallery: Thousands gather to remember victims of Walmart shooting

Sunday night, thousands of El Pasoans from all walks of life made their way to a baseball diamond in a park less than a mile from Saturday’s mass shooting, to remember the victims and to honor those who helped during the incident.

In the summer dusk, the crowd gathered, prayed, sung and heard stories from those who were there and those who helped.

Our very own Andres Acosta was at the ceremony and we bring you his view of the even in this gallery.

  1. STOMP OUT GOP WHITE SUPREMACY!

    This is what Donald J Trump did to our city of El Paso Texas! through all of his hate speech rhetoric, dog whistles from all of his campaign hate rallies.
    From the very beginning on June 16 2015 when he rode down the escalators of Trump Tower and started calling Mexicans,rapist and drug dealers!
    Till most recently, another one of his campaign hate rallies in Florida where he was bashing immigrants as an invading infestation.
    When he said that how can you stop 15,000 immigrants from coming across, when we only have three border patrol agents protecting the border? Someone in attendance yelled: SHOOT THEM!!! then Donald Trump smiled and sort of smirked! nodding his head. Like grinning YES!
    I will say this also, that if Hillary Clinton had been our 45th president! this tragic incident that happened at Walmart on Saturday August 2 2019, never would have happened.
    If we respected the will of the American voters and do whats right,and elect our presidents through the popular vote only. THE VOTE! ONLY!
    20 former El Pasoans would still be alive today on Monday August 5th 2019,getting ready to send their children back to school.
    20 El Pasoans would still be alive this morning if we didn’t have this rig system called the electoral college,that enables losers like George W Bush and Donald J Trump.
    To rob the will of the American voters and install them either as the most corrupted elite or the colluding puppet of Russian president Vladimir Putin.
    All those descent beautiful people made their way on Sunday night to the baseball diamond for a vigil to honor 20 dead El Pasoans.
    I bet that there where NO REPUBLICANS! at this Walmart massacre memorial event. just saying….
    White nationalist supremacist is very real! and it has spilled it’s evilness on 20 El Pasoans,their lives can never be replaced,thanks to Donald J Trump.
    Now under Donald Trump’s ways and means this tragic murder is considered a domestic terrorist attack.
    But is not being labeled a HATE CRIME! WHY? because only Mexicans and Mexican Americans were killed at Walmart. No Whites ,No African Americans,Just brown skin people.
    Andres Acosta did a wonderful job in this photography!
    I only comment on the El Paso Herald Post and never at the Racist KVIA commenting forum that is infested with nothing but racist bigots right wing republicans and some white nationalist. They know who they are, we have some of them here too, on the EPHP! Yea, We DO!
    I also comment on more nationwide News Blogs outside of El Paso.
    My condolence and respect goes out to the victims families!
    God Bless El Paso.

    • The Original MAGA

      Stop politicizing this tragedy. Three Caucasians were also killed. This was a deranged lunatic. That’s all. Nothing to do with Trump. Nothing to do with Obama. Just a sick, evil person. Get over your hatred. Look at the facts. I know thats hard for you but please try. El Paso nor this country needs the likes if you causing more division.

      • STOMP OUT GOP WHITE SUPREMACY!

        Well so three Caucasians were killed and 18 Mexicans were slaughtered by a white nationalist trump supporter. You haven’t seen Patrick’s manifesto! all these different assault rifles and hand guns spelling the word TRUMP?
        Damn you are blind and ignorant.It’s you and your type of people that are doing all the shootings with your assault rifles and you still can’t admit it Original MAGA.
        And those red MAGA hats all represent HATE! that is why they wear them.
        Like the KKK wears their proud white cloaks and white conical hoods . Same thing, same purpose same hate towards minorities.
        Just by you supporting Donald Trump helps identify what kind of person you are. Original, nothing to be proud of. Stop watching Fox News and get your hear out of your rear end and start watching real news for a change.
        You brainwashed child.

        • The Original MAGA

          Do some homework. Read something other than the propoganda of Beto and Escobar and the Democratic Presidential candidates. Just stop and read something. The so called manifesto is filled with contradictory information designed to confuse and divide and you fell for it hook line and sinker. He spoke of the wall and reducing immigration. And mentioned support for Trump. That’s true. He also talked about universal income and climate change and other socialist ideologies. This attack was not political. There is no clear evidence that this person is a democrat or a republican and frankly it doesnt really matter. It was simply a sick person acting on his own sick desires.tl Try focusing on that. The human race was attacked. We need to unite and heal. People like you who are using this tragedy to make political gains and to sell your political rhetoric are just and sick as the shooter. You are the most division person I’ve ever heard of.

          • STOMP OUT GOP WHITE SUPREMACY!

            I’ll tell you what Original maga, why don’t you go to the Walmart at Cielo Vista and asked the people around there what their opinion about Donald Trump is? Seriously! GO!
            And I can assure you that the majority of all El Pasoans will tell you the same as I’m telling you here.
            There is something really serious about people like you,yes the red maga hat wearers.
            Your brainwashed for starters and you distort from the truth.
            The Mexican Race was attacked because of Donald Trump,and a few Anglo’s where accidentally targeted or caught in the crossfire by mistake.
            No the attack was not political, it was intentional and premeditated, due to El Paso’s 85% Mexican American population! Are you a Gringo be any chance? surely a trumpTURD supporter and a Fox propagandist liar.
            Please don’t tell me that you are a VENDIDO! translates to traitor.
            Mikey,get lost HUEDO APESTOSO RACISTA!

    • Alberto, how does it feel to be the biggest racist in El Paso?

  2. How morally corrupt can an elected official be to accept killing of innocent human beings rather than risk damage to their political career? Time an again they have ignored these horrific events and spend much of their time and efforts not in prevention, but in deflection and meaningless gestures and blame. They have FAILED and need to go.
