On August 3, 2019, a gunman entered a popular El Paso Walmart and opened fire. In this very personal account, Al Hernandez writes a story of devastating loss and confusion post the worst domestic terrorist attack on the Latino community in the history of the United States.
His recollection is a potent account of the turmoil he endures as he and his family search for his sister amidst the mayhem in the community. After this atrocity, the community of El Paso is unable to return to what they once were.
They, then, become something more. They are reborn stronger and more united than ever. Al Hernandez celebrates life and shows the journey to healing from the worst moment in his life in El Paso’s Darkest Day.
