Description

This episode will be different because of the first anniversary of the shooting outside a Walmart in El Paso (Texas), which left 23 dead. I interview Mr. Gilberto Anchondo, who lost his youngest son, André Pablo, and his daughter-in-law, Jordan, in the massacre. 
The Anchondos are now helping to raise Paul Gilbert, the victims´ youngest son, whom they shielded with their bodies and saved his life on that fateful day. 
Activists are using the anniversary as a call to action to come out and vote against racism in November. 
In the interview, Mr. Anchondo works through memories from the day, the tough road ahead towards closure, and the many challenges of raising his grandson.
