Longtime General Hospital Fan Identified As One Of The Victims In El Paso Shootings

Photo: ABC

America has been reeling, once again, over the news of two mass shootings happening on the same day this past Saturday; one in El Paso, Texas and the other in Dayton, Ohio.

22 were killed in El Paso at a Walmart.  As families waited for the news of loved ones, there was one story revealed by longtime host and journalist, Katie Couric on her Instagram account that made mention that one of this woman’s great joys was being an avid watcher of General Hospital.

In her post on victim Angelina Englisbee, 86, Couric said (along with separate posts on the lives of other victims from El Paso and Dayton): “Angie was talking on the phone with one of her sons when she told him she had to hang up because she was in the checkout line at Walmart.  She had seven children. Her husband had died of a heart attack, leaving her to raise the children on her own. Her granddaughter Mia, 16, said she ‘loved watching sports and General Hospital.”‘

The New York Times spoke to Englisbee’s granddaughter, who expressed: “At one point, she was working three jobs at once.  She was a very strong person, very blunt.”  When the news came, Mia and her mother were in the car, driving to El Paso from their home in New Mexico. “My mom could not stop crying, and I remember thinking, ‘I can’t cry until we get there, I can’t cry until we stop,’” Mia said, adding, ‘It feels like hell — it doesn’t feel real.”’

Share your condolences and prayers for Angelina and her family, and all of the victims of the mass shootings and their loved ones via the comment section below.

There is no love and compassion for our fellow human beings..no morals taught…no respect…it doesnt matter to me what color you are…it doesnt matter if your short or tall..it doesnt matter if thin or fat…it doesnt matter if you are religious or not…what matters if you are a kind, honest and caring person who obeys the laws and treat others the way you want to be treated…hate is a waste of time and time is too short to waste!!!

So love your comment, Jimmy—-thoughtful and compassionate. Respect for humanity starts in the home—-carries on what is taught in school. We, as a society have lost that.
Innocent people, children, lose their lives for naught ….and for those who point fingers must realize that by doing so will only stir the pot even more—-incite the disturbed mind to do the unimaginable. It is time to pray and come together.
My heart and prayers go to all those families; to all those parents who have lost children—-the worst pain anyone could ever have to endure.

@CeeCee…You are so right about the importance of proper home and school teachings and their unquestionable impact upon a child’s sense of both self-respect and respect for others! However, given the de rigueur anti-male social conditioning that is so prevalent in today’s public discourse and curriculum, I fear too many of our precious little chaps are sorely lacking in receiving the necessary support and loving guidance that they so deeply deserve and require, especially beginning at a tender age. Just consider that during the last two decades, most young men—particularly, but not exclusively, those of caucasian background—have been constantly subjected… Read more »

It is what it is, but this deplorable knows her ‘stuff’—I did say to you that I was ready to vote for Hillary until the last minute—-the discovery of the machinations and means she and her deceitful ‘peons’ used to achieve the purported deceptive and criminal ends is mystifying. I could not believe what I read—No need to explain any further. All I can say is that only the ignorant fall for the propaganda—everyone should read the Manifesto.

I am sorry, but that orange sociopath’s words were echoed by the El Paso shooter in a manifesto he posted on social media. Yes, these massive killings have existed twenty years before the orange sociopath took office. But the orange sociopath has taken a match and lit up the angry, white nationalist. He needs to take responsibility for that. Moreover, he is HORRIBLE at making people feel better in the aftermath of a massive tragedy–all he does is make folks feel more nervous, insecure and scared. America is under attack and the enemy is ourselves–this is domestic terrorism.

And, the Dayton shooter announced he killed in the name of socialism, dear Harry. He went on to say he worships Sanders and Warren….yet, we do not hear this from the far-left media and the Dems. Was Obama to blame for the Sandy Hook shooting of innocent children? I have friends in Newtoen ( Sandy Hook) whose children were in attendance. My friend is grateful and thankful everyday her children were safe and well. Why do you discriminate against someone’s skin coloring? Would you say that to a black, brown or yellow HUMAN being?

Sad, but oh, so true, Kay! Despite the all-too-familiar finger-pointing, blame-gaming and political posturing that occurs every single time one of these evil nutjobs goes off the handle and shoots up a place, nothing—including punishing innocent, law-abiding citizens with ever-stricter prohibitions—is going to stop these nefarious characters as long as the media enable them with both a platform to share their sick manifestos and an ultimate public moment of glorious recognition which they so obviously crave. Where there is a will, there is always going to be a way…whether via the blackmarket for desired weaponry or simply another means to… Read more »

Shay…Using your words, “where there is a will there is a way,” why not apply this to lawmakers? Especially Mitch’s group and those in both parties beholden to the NRA and gun manufacturers right her in the US. There has been these kinds of atrocities before the present administration, but not so many as the last few years. And unlike other presidents, words that help fuel the fire coming from the present “leader” of our country. For someone who appreciates language and words I would think you could see this. And another note about “where there is a will there… Read more »

Soulless, Godless, excuses for human beings. I have eyes. I have ears. I have a brain!! The blatant odium for one man and his family, down to the youngest child; a baby , is something to behold!!

Colt produced the AR-15 assault rifle was made 1957 / quite old, like 60yrs old. (it was 1st made by the USSR, yup ) I’ve fired one/ heavy not and not as accurate as the M16, the one I carried. (The receiver markings is stamped’ M16A2 property of U.S, government Cal 5.56 mm / saw that near every day.) The newest rifle is the M4, so AK-15 is quite old used in Korea and Vietnam. So, any person not of the military in possession of an AR-15 should be jailed, in my opinion. I’ve seen what the assault rifles can… Read more »

Heart breaking, and we have a president who has engaged in hateful, racist speech right there in El Paso. I guess building that senseless wall would not have prevented this from happening. Our president is a sociopath who is incapable of admitting where he went wrong and also incapable of showing empathy. He needs to stay away from El Paso (besides, he owes the town 500,000 from his last hate rally he held there) and also stay away from Dayton (which he idiotically called Toledo). If he really loves his country as he attests, he will stop with the hateful… Read more »

That, Harry, is absolutely not true!! Trump defends himsef from a sea of evil and damaging words. Cannot blame him—-but, if course you do—-cynical words, Harry. I would not engage in name-calling…but, you’re forgiven considering it is part of a democrat’s make-up. We need peace of mind, love in our hearts, not hate—the propagation of hate is well demonstrated by Maxine Walters and her ilk. Everyone is a scholar now? Please….. I think those who appreciate Socialism should move to Russia, Venezuela, NK, Iran etc. It does not work. Why? The people are oppressed!! They may deny this ideology, but… Read more »

My heart feels deep loss and compassion every time these senseless acts happen…again and again. Seems to me there are some real common sense things that can help…way less access and ease to to all kinds of guns would be a major help in the right direction. And words and statements about people and groups also count big time. Especially coming from those whose voices are heard often, and likewise to those who remain silent when these thoughts and words are expressed. Then there is social media and I’m afraid Pandora’s box has been open. Just wish they can find… Read more »

Nicely said, Rose. Trump’s whole campaign platform was predicated upon pitting us against “them.” Amplifying white man’s anger (what are they so angry about?) is his way of firing up his base. When his supporters shriek “send her back!” or “shoot them!” he smiles and laughs. We need our president and our leaders to act like calm, responsible grown ups. We saw McCain do this when he gently corrected a frightened and confused old lady by telling her that no, Obama was not a Muslim, that he was a good Christian man.

Shay

No, it was actually the exact opposite, my dear Harry! For the eight years preceding Trump, your guy gave the middle finger to Middle America at every opportunity! People lost homes, lifelong careers, investments and health care that they liked and had earned the right to keep whilst he was more interested in being a celebrity-like “president of the world,” bashing law enforcement, letting all and sundry cross our Southern border at immense expense to taxpayers with no concerns for the safety and welfare of our own citizens and micro-managing personal life matters like what one’s child eats for lunch… Read more »

General Hospital’s Halloween Week Promo Touts Wicked Surprises

Looks like everyone will be on edge this week as Halloween comes to Port Charles.  In the newly-released ABC promo for General Hospital, it reveals that this spooky week of episodes will be a rollercoaster ride, featuring wicked surprises, and killer costumes.

After Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) scolds Franco (Roger Howarth) for having his hand in the candy jar, Anna (Finola Hughes) or is it? … is donning a black witches hat. Jackie (Kim Delaney) is seen opening her door, juxtaposed with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) saying “trick or treat”. But, is he actually at the door of someone else?

Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) asks Ava (Maura West), “Darling, what are you holding behind your back?” That is revealed to be a knife, but is it Ava who truly has the knife?

 

Meanwhile, Jason (Steve Burton) is looking around in the dark.  Elsewhere, Peter is jumpy.  So much so that Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) utters, “Looks like you’ve seen a ghost.”

Add all that to last Friday’s episode of GH where Carly(Laura Wright) thinks she saw Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) hand come out of her grave and attack her! Is Nelle (Chloe Lanier) going to be proven to be alive? And if so, will she pop up on Halloween and scare the hell out of Carly?

Watch the promo below, then let us know what you think will happen this week on General Hospital via the comment section.

Maurice Benard has brought his State of Mind  to You Tube, and his guest for this week is none other than Sonny Corinthos’ longtime nemesis Jasper Jacks, Ingo Rademacher.

Ingo also shares how over the past few years his relationship with his son has approved, while Maurice offers key moments from his past with his father and his own son.

Per Maurice on the concept behind the show and his ongoing website: “State of Mind to me means being 100% present, feeling completely at peace inside of you, not letting your thoughts control your life and always looking for ways to be the best that you can be.”
