Pence speaks at Las Vegas prayer service”

Vice President Mike Pence, accompanied his wife, Karen, speaks in Las Vegas on Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017, following a unity prayer walk honoring the victims of last weekend's massacre.

Pence took part in a community prayer event Saturday afternoon with Mayor Carolyn Goodman, U.S. Senator Cortez Masto, Nevada Senator Dean Heller and other dignitaries. "And I stand before you today on behalf of my family, and every family in America to say: We're with you".

Vice President Mike Pence memorialized the victims of the worst mass shooting in modern US history on Saturday, offering words of comfort at a ceremony held at Las Vegas City Hall.

Pence told the stories of the day's heroes, such as a father who shielded his daughter, and an off duty fireman who stayed at the scene to help the victims.

Las Vegas' Democratic Congresswoman Dina Titus was the only speaker who touched on the subject of gun violence and politics, saying, "Let us also pray for those who have power that they will have the wisdom, the courage, and the resolve to find ways to end the gun violence that plagues our nation".

"To the families of these and all the fallen near and far, we extend the deepest condolences of the first family, of our family and of the American people", the vice president said.

After giving remarks, Pence made an unexpected stop at the site of the concert shooting, observing for a few minutes the 58 crosses that have been erected in memory of the victims who were killed by the shooter.
