Efrem: IT IS

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5,

THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

THE PRESIDENT IS BACK IN

WASHINGTON TODAY, AFTER A

DAY-LONG TRIP TO LAS

VEGAS, WHERE HE MET WITH

FIRST RESPONDERS IN THE

LAS VEGAS MASSACRE.

HE THANKED THE PEOPLE WHO

RUSHED TO THE SCENE TO

HELP THE INJURED.

AND HE COMMENDED THE

MEDICAL PEOPLE WHO TREATED

SO MANY PEOPLE IN SUCH A

SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.

BEN KENNEDY REPORTS FROM

LAS VEGAS.

Reporter: THE STORIES

OF SU SURVIVAL ARE NOTHING

LESS THAN INCREDIBLE.

President Trump: IN

THE DEPTHS OF HORROR, WE

WILL ALWAYS FIND HOPE.

IN THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO

RISK THEIR LIVES FOR OURS.

Reporter: THE

COMMANDER IN CHIEF USED

WORDS LIKE "AMAZING" AND

"INCREDIBLE" WHEN TALKING

ABOUT THE FIRST RESPONDERS

IN MEDICAL TEAMS.

President Trump: IT

MAKES YOU VERY PROUD TO BE

AN AMERICAN WHEN YOU SEE

THE JOB THEY HAVE DONE.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP MET WITH VICTIMS AND

GAVE HIS PERSONAL THANKS

TO OFFICERS, AND EVEN

HONORED CIVILIANS WHO PUT

ASIDE THEIR OWN SAFETY TO

PROTECT OTHERS.

President Trump:

AMERICANS DASHED INTO A

HAIL OF BULLETS TO RESCUE

TOTAL STRANGERS.

Reporter: AND WHILE

IN LAS VEGAS, TRUMP ALSO

MET WITH LOCAL PASTORS.

HE SHOOK OUR HANDS AND

TOLD US PASTORS, THANK YOU

FOR BEING HERE.

Reporter: THIS PASTOR

GOT THE CHANCE TO TALK TO

THE PRESIDENT AND FIRST

LADY ONE-ON-ONE.

WHAT DID IT MEAN TO YOU TO

HAVE PRESIDENT TRUMP HERE

SHAKING YOUR HAND DURING

THIS TIME OF TRAGEDY?

IT MEANT A WHOLE LOT,

NOT ONLY TO ME, BUT TO THE

WHOLE CITY, BECAUSE THE

CITY NEEDED HIM AT THIS

TIME, AND HE SHOWED UP.

Reporter: THIS PASTOR

AGREES, ADDING THAT TRUMP

CONTINUES TO TURN TO GOD

IN TIMES OF TRAGEDY.

PEOPLE ASK THE

QUESTION, WHERE IS GOD IN

ALL OF THIS?

GOD IS RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE

OF IT.

HE WAS DRAWING US TO HIM

AND SAVING PEOPLE.

President Trump: MAY

GOD BRING HEALING TO THE

FAMILIES OF THE WOUNDED,

THE INJURED, AND THE

FALLEN.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT WAS ONLY IN THE

DESERT FOR A FEW HOURS,

BUT IN THAT SHORT PERIOD

OF TIME HAD A BIG IMPACT

IN THE WAKE OF THIS

TRAGEDY.

AS THE POLICE CONTINUE

THEIR INVESTIGATION HERE

BEHIND ME INTO THE MOTIVE

BEHIND THIS MASSACRE.

BEN KENNEDY, CBN NEWS, LAS

VEGAS.

Efrem: HOUSE

REPUBLICANS ARE LOOKING TO

PASS A BUDGET PLAN TODAY

WITH AN EYE TO PAVING THE

WAY FOR TAX CUTS IN THE

DAYS TO COME.

THE $4.1 TRILLION BUDGET

PLAN PROMISES TO MAKE

LONG-TERM CUTS TO

PROGRAMS, LIKE MEDICAID

AND MEDICARE.

THE AIM IS TO CLEAR THE

WAY FOR A MASSIVE REMAKE

OF THE TAX CODE LATER THIS

YEAR.

THE PLAN CALLS FOR

$5 TRILLION IN SPENDING

CUTS OVER THE NEXT DECADE

AND REPEALING OBAMACARE.

> A SURPRISE STATEMENT

FROM REX TILLERSON, WHO

DECLARED HE IS LOYAL TO

THE PRESIDENT AND NEVER

CONSIDERED LEAVING HIS

POST.

THIS COMES AFTER NEWS

REPORTS THAT OVER THE

SUMMER TILLERSON WANTED TO

QUIT AND HAD TO BE

RESTRAINED BY

VICE-PRESIDENT PENCE.

TILLERSON FLATLY DENIED

THAT REPORT.

THE VICE PRESIDENT HAS

NEVER HAD TO PERSUADE ME

TO REMAIN AS SECRETARY OF

STATE BECAUSE I HAVE NEVER

CONSIDERED LEAVING THIS

POST.

Efrem: THE SECRETARY

OF STATE DID NOT DIRECTLY

ANSWER A QUESTION THAT HE

ONCE CALLED THE PRESIDENT

A MORON, REPLYING THAT HE

WOULD NOT TAKE PART IN

EFFORTS TO DIVIDE THE

ADMINISTRATION.

PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS THAT

REPORTS ARE FAKE NEWS.

> AFTER UNPRECEDENTED

VIOLENCE AGAINST CITIZENS

ON SUNDAY, SPAIN IS HEADED

FOR ANOTHER SHOWDOWN WITH

THE RENEGADE PROVINCE OF

CATALONIA, WHICH WANTS TO

BECOME AN INDEPENDENT

STATE.

DALE HURD IS ON THIS

STORY.

Reporter: WITH ITS

CAPITAL IN BARCELONAIA,

CATALONIA HAS ITS OWN

HISTORY AND LANGUAGE.

AND IT PAYS MORE TO THE

SPANISH GOVERNMENT IN

MADRID THAN IT GETS BACK.

THERE ARE REPORTS THE

CATALAN PARLIAMENT WILL

CONSIDER A DECLARATION OF

INDEPENDENCE FROM SPAIN ON

MONDAY.

EUROPEANS WERE SHOCKED AT

THE EXTRAORDINARY LEVEL OF

VIOLENCE DIRECTED AGAINST

CATALANECATALANS TRYING TO VOTE ON

SUNDAY.

A FORMER LEADER OF THE

CZECH REPUBLIC CAME TO

BUSTLES AND HE GAVE A

SPEAK.

AND HE TOLD THE E.U.

LAWMAKERS THAT TH IT REMINDED

HIM OF THE SOVIET UNION

AND HE WAS BOOED.

BUT IT COULD REMIND PEOPLE

WHAT LIFE WAS LIKE BEHIND

THE IRON CURTAINS.

ALMOST 900 PEOPLE WERE

INJURED BY POLICE.

I TOLD THE EUROPEAN

UNION I'M DEMOCRATIC.

BUT NEVER IN MY FIERCEST FIERCEST

CRITICISMS HERE DID I

THINK WE WOULD SEE THE

POLICE OF A MEMBER STATE

OF THE UNION INJURING 900

PEOPLE IN AN ATTEMPT TO

STOP THEM GOING OUT TO

VOTE.

WE SAW WOMEN BEING DRAGGED

OUT OF POLLING STATIONS BY

THEIR HAIR, OLD LADIES

WITH GASHES IN THEIR

FOREHEAD.

AND WHAT DO WE GET FROM

MR. UNGER TODAY, NOT A

DICKIE BIRD.

Reporter: THE

EUROPEAN COMMISSION HAS

SIDED FIRMLY WITH THE

GOVERNMENT IN MADRID AND

SAID THE SPANISH

GOVERNMENT'S USE OF FORCE

WAS NECESSARY TO UPHOLD

THE RULE OF LAW.

THE INDEPENDENCE MOVEMENT

IN CATALONIA IS A BIG

PROBLEM FOR THE EUROPEAN

UNION BECAUSE THERE ARE

MANY REGIONS OF EUROPE,

MOST NOTABLY FLANDERS, IN

THE NORTHERN HALF OF

BELGIUM, WHERE OTHER

SEPARATIST UNIONS WANT TO

BREAK AWAY AND DECLARE

THEIR OWN NATIONS.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: THREE U.S.

SPECIAL ARMY FORCES WERE

WOUNDEKILLED AND TWO WERE

WOUNDED.

THE DEATHS OCCURRED IN AN

AMBUSH BY SUSPECTED

MILITANTS IN THE REGION.

THE ARMY GREEN BERETS ARE

THE FIRST CASUALTIES IN

THE MISSION TO WHERE THEY

ARE PROVIDING TRAINING TO

ARMED FORCES THE PRESIDENT

WAS BRIEFED ON THE

SITUATION WEDNESDAY

EVENING, AFTER HIS RETURN

FROM LAS VEGAS.

> PUERTO RICO IS NOW

FACING A WORSENING

FINANCIAL CRISIS.

THE ISLAND TERRITORY COULD

SHUT DOWN OCTOBER 31st

IF CONGRESS DOES NOT

PROVIDE BILLIONS OF

DOLLARS IN EMERGENCY

FUNDS.

PUERTO RICO HAS ALREADY

SPENT THE $1.6 BILLION IT

HAD ON HAND BEFORE

HURRICANE MARIA HIT THE

ISLAND.

BUT THEY ARE STILL WITHOUT

POWER, WITHOUT CLEAN WATER

AND OTHER BASIC SUPPLIES.

MEANWHILE, THE DEATH TOLL

HAS ALSO RISEN.

THE GOVERNMENT OF PUERTO

RICO IS COUNTING AT LEAST

TWO SUICIDES IN ITS

OFFICIAL TALLY ON THOSE

DEATHS BEING BLAMED ON

MARIA.

THE DEATH TOLL NOW STANDS

AT 34.

> STILL AHEAD ON CBN

"NEWSWATCH," SEE HOW

ISRAEL IS RESPONDING TO

THE TERROR IN LAS VEGAS.

Efrem: IN THE WAKE OF

THE HORRIFYING MASSACRE IN

LAS VEGAS, ISRAELI PRIME

MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU SAID ESPECIALLY

AT THIS TIME THE PEOPLE OF

ISRAEL STAND WITH THE

PEOPLE OF AMERICA.

TRAGICALLY, ISRAEL HAS A

GREAT DEAL OF EXPERIENCE

DEALING WITH ATTACKS LIKE

THAT ONE IN LAS VEGAS.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS

NOW, JUST OUTSIDE

JERUSALEM, ISRAELIS NOT

ONLY ARE MOURNING WITH

AMERICANS, BUT THEY ALSO

WANT TO SHARE SOME HARD

LESSONS THEY'VE LEARNED

DEALING WITH ACTS OF

TERROR.

[YELLING]

Chris: WELCOME TO

CALIBER THREE, A

COUNTER-TERRORISM SCHOOL

TRAINING PEOPLE FROM ALL

OVER THE WORLD.

HERE AT CALIBER THREE,

THEY TEACH PERSONAL

SELF-DEFENSE,

COUNTER-TERRORISM

TECHNIQUES, AND HOW TO

RESPOND DURING A TERROR

ATTACK.

TERROR, OR ATTACKS LIKE

THAT, CAN OCCUR ANYWHERE,

IN ISRAEL, IN EUROPE, IN

AMERICA, IN LAS VEGAS.

Chris: SHARON GATT IS

THE OWNER OF CALIBER

THREE, AND SAYS ISRAELIS

HAVE LEARNED HOW TO

QUICKLY RESPOND TO A

TERROR ATTACK.

THEY UNDERSTAND

IMMEDIATELY, AFTER ONE

BULLET IS SHOT, WHAT THEY

HAVE TO DO.

THEY HAVE TO LIE ON THE

GROUND, CATCH A COVER, GET

OUT OF THE PLACE AS FAST

AS POSSIBLE, AND BE AS

SMALL AS POSSIBLE AS THEY

CAN.

Chris: HE ALSO SAYS

ISRAELIS HAVE LEARNED FROM

EXPERIENCE THAT THOSE

ACTIONS WORK.

CIVILIANS CARRYING

WEAPONS RESPOND TO ATTACKS

LIKE THAT AND STOP THEM.

THAT'S HOW ATTACKS LIKE

THESE ARE STOPPED IN

ISRAEL.

AND IN THAT WAY, EVEN IF

THE POLICE IS NOT THERE,

AND THE MILITARY IS NOT

THERE, BUT THERE WAS A

CIVILIAN IN THE NEXT ROOM

IN THE HOTEL THAT HAD A

WEAPON, HE GOES AND HE

KILLS THE MADMAN AND

FINISHES THE ATTACK AND

SAVES PEOPLE'S LIVES.

Chris: HE SAYS DURING

AN ATTACK LIKE LAS VEGAS,

PEOPLE NEED TO REMEMBER TO

TAKE ACTIONS.

BEING LESS EXPOSED, AND

FIND A COVER.

THAT WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE.

Chris: AND HE ALSO

BELIEVES GUNS IN THE RIGHT

HANDS CAN SAVE LIVES.

I'M NOT THE GUY WHO IS

SAYING THAT PEOPLE

SHOULDN'T HAVE A WEAPON.

ON THE CONTRARY.

I THINK PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE

A WEAPON.

THE WEAPON IS NOT WHAT

KILLS PEOPLE.

WHAT KILLS PEOPLE ARE

PEOPLE.

BUT YOU NEED TO KNOW WHO

YOU ARE GIVING THE WEAPON

TO.

AND YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT

THE PERSON THAT IS GETTING

A WEAPON IS TRAINED WELL

ENOUGH AND IS MENTALLY

OKAY TO CARRY A WEAPON.

Chris: AND HE THINKS

THAT SADLY, IN LIGHT OF

THE LAS VEGAS MASSACRE,

AMERICANS NEED A NEW MAN

TAL THELITY.

MENTALITY.

AMERICANS HAVE TO

UNDERSTAND THAT ATTACKS

LIKE THIS OCCUR, AND THEY

HAVE OCCURRED, AND THEY

WILL OCCUR IN THE FUTURE,

AND PEOPLE HAVE TO BE MORE

AWARE.

THEY CAN STILL LIVE THEIR

LIVES, BUT THEY HAVE TO BE

MORE AWARE.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

ISRAEL.

Efrem: CYBER ATTACKS

HAVE RECENTLY BEEN IN THE

HEADLINES.

ONE RECENT EXAMPLE IS

EQUIFAX.

NOW REGENT UNIVERSITY HAS

ENTERED THE BATTLE AGAINST

HACKERS.

AS MARK MARTIN SHOWS US,

THIS WEEK THE SCHOOL HAS

UNVEILED ITS CYBER RANGE.

Reporter: SURROUNDED

BY STATE AND LOCAL

DIGNITARIES, DR. PAT

ROBERTSON CUT THE RIBBON

TO REVEAL THE NEW REGENT

CYBER RANGE.

THEY PARTNERED WITH CYBER

BIT TO CREATE THIS

HIGH-TECH LABORATORY.

COORDINATORS SAY IT PUTS

REGENT UNIVERSITY ON THE

CUTTING-EDGE OF CYBER

TRAINING FOR STUDENTS, AND

ALSO FOR BUSINESSES,

GOVERNMENTS, AND MILITARY

GROUPS.

FOUR TIMES THE AVERAGE

SIZE, THE MULTI-MILLION

CYBER RANGE ALLOWS USERS

TO DELVE IN DEFENSE AND

MULTI-SCENARIO TRAINING.

Pat: IF THEIR

EXECUTIVES HAVE BEEN

TRAINED ON THIS SYSTEM,

THEY WILL BE ABLE TO

IDENTIFY IMMEDIATELY WHAT

IS HAPPENING AND TO TAKE

CORRECTIVE ACTION.

THAT'S WHAT WE WILL TEACH

PEOPLE.

Reporter: THE CYBER

RANGE IS ONE OF THE FIRST

OF ITS KIND AT A PRIVATE

UNIVERSITY.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

DR. DAVID HENRY GAVE CBN

NEWS A TOUR.

FROM THESE STATIONS,

ATTACKS CAN BE GENERATED,

AND THEY CAN MONITOR HOW

THE TRAINING IS DOING.

SO THE TRAINER CAN

ACTUALLY TAKE CONTROL OVER

THE TRAINING STATION IF HE

OR SHE WANTS TO.

Reporter: IN THE

MIDST OF ALL OF THE

TECHNOLOGY, ROBERTSON

BELIEVES THAT THE CYBER

RANGE HAS SPIRITUAL

IMPLICATIONS.

Pat: HERE IS A

COMPANY THAT IS GOING TO

TRAIN PEOPLE HOW TO RUN

THE MOST SOPHISTICATED

CYBER RANGE IN THE WORLD.

Reporter: REPORTS

SHOW THAT CYBER SECURITY

IS ONE THE FASTEST GROWING

CAREER FIELDS, AND THE

DEMAND IS EXPECTED TO RISE

TO SIX MILLION JOBS IN

2019.

IT LOOKS LIKE REGENT

UNIVERSITY IS WELL ON ITS

WAY IN HELPING TO MEET

THAT NEED.

IN VIRGINIA BEACH, MARK

MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: UP NEXT,

CHRISTIANITY IN CHINA IS

GROWING, BUT IT IS STILL

CONSIDERED TO BE A

MINORITY RELIGION.

SEE HOW CHURCHES ARE

FINDING NEW WAYS TO REACH

MORE PEOPLE WITH THE

GOSPEL.

Efrem: DESPITE ITS

GROWTH IN CHINA,

CHRISTIANITY IS STILL

CONSIDERED A MINOR

RELIGION.

ONE CHURCH IN HONG KONG IS

BRINGING THE GOSPELS TO

THE PRISONS, AND IT IS

HAVING A GREAT IMPACT.

MUNG FE LI HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: FROM

SUNRISE TO SUNSET, PEOPLE

SHARE STORIES ABOUT HONG

KONG AND IT IS GAINING THE

ATTENTION OF THE WORLD.

SINCE 1997, HONG KONG HAS

BECOME THE ENGINE DRIVING

THE CHINESE ECONOMY WITH A

POPULATION OF SEVEN

MILLION.

THE CITY IS THE HOME OF

MANY INTERNATIONAL

BUSINESSES AND A THRIVING

TOURIST INDUSTRY.

SUSAN IS A CHURCH LEADER

WHO SAYS HONG KONG AND ITS

PEOPLE ARE SPECIAL TO HER.

I TRY TO ADD VALUE TO

THE PEOPLE AROUND ME.

WE'RE ALL SPECIAL IN SOME

WAY.

Reporter: BESIDES

MANAGING THE CHURCH, SHE

IS ALSO ACTIVELY INVOLVED

IN AN IMPORTANT MISSION:

GIVING HOPE AND GUIDANCE

TO HONG KONG PRISON

INMATES.

HONG KONG HAS BEEN PART OF

MAINLAND CHINA FOR MORE

THAN 20 YEARS.

MOST OF US KNOW THAT

CHRISTIANITY IS SPREADING

RAPIDLY IN CHINA.

HONG KONG HAS A MORE OPEN

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM POLICY

THAN MAINLAND CHINA, AND

THAT'S WHY THE PRISON

MINISTRY IS ONLY POSSIBLE

IN THIS PARTE OF CHINA.

>PART OF CHINA.

WE DESIGNED A UNIQUE

PROGRAM.

THE PROGRAM IS TEACHING

THESE PEOPLE THAT GOD CAN

CHANGE US INWARDLY, AND

ALSO OUTWARDLY.

WE HAVE ALL MADE MISTAKES

IN LIFE.

THE CRITICAL PART IS TO

ACKNOWLEDGE THE MISTAKES

AND GET ON A NEW PATH.

Reporter: WHEN MANY

WERE TEENAGERS, MANY WERE

UNAWARE THAT BAD CHOICES

OFTEN LEAD TO SEVERE

CONSEQUENCES.

IN 1998, ROBSON LAW WAS

ARRESTED ON DRUG CHARGES

AND IMPRISONED FOR 25

YEARS.

THE 25 YEARS IN PRISON

WAS HARSH.

I THOUGHT MY LIFE WAS

DONE.

THE CHOICES THAT I MADE

BROUGHT PAIN AND TRAUMA TO

ME.

I THOUGHT MY LIFE WAS

WASHED AWAY.

LIFE DIDN'T MEAN ANYTHING

TO ME THEN.

Reporter: DURING HIS

DARKEST MOMENTS, LAW MET A

PASTOR FROM SUSAN'S

CHURCH, WHO INTRODUCED HIM

TO CHRIST.

LAW WAS DEEPLY MOVED.

I WAS TOUCHED BY GOD.

AT THE TIME, I WASN'T A

BELIEVER AND TRIED TO

COMMIT SUICIDE.

BUT I HEARD A VOICE

SAYING, ARE YOU REALLY

GOING TO DO STUPID THINGS

AND HURT YOUR FAMILY

AGAIN?

THAT WAS THE VOICE OF THE

HEAVENLY FATHER.

Reporter: AS LAW

STUDIED THE BIBLE, HE

UNDERSTOOD THAT GOD STILL

HAD A BETTER PLAN FOR HIS

LIFE.

HIS CIRCUMSTANCES DIDN'T

DETERMINE HIS FUTURE.

ONLY GOD HAD THE FINAL

SAY.

IN 2011, LAW WAS RELEASED.

HE IMMEDIATELY STARTED TO

ATTEND KUNGFUN

ORGANIZATION.

HE BECAME PART OF A CHURCH

FAMILY AND RECEIVED A NEW

MISSION FROM THE LORD.

GOD HAD FULFILLED MY

DREAM OF USING SPORTS TO

SPREAD THE GOSPEL.

HE HAS CALLED ME TO BECOME

A MINISTER.

Reporter: LAW'S FAITH

AND PASSION FOR THE LORD

MOVED HIS FAMILY MEMBERS,

TOO.

HE PRAYED THAT HIS PARENTS

COULD COME TO CHURCH AND

BECOME CHRISTIANS, TOO.

A CHURCH LEADER WAS DEEPLY

TOUCHED BY LAW'S

TRANSFORMATION.

WE WANT THEM TO HAVE A

JOB THEY ARE GOD AT AND

HAVE A GREAT PURPOSE OF

SERVING GOD.

THESE ARE ALL OUR GOALS.

Reporter: TODAY,

SUSAN AND THE CHURCH ARE

MAKING GREATER EFFORTS,

USING THE GOSPEL AND

CREATIVE WAYS TO CHANGE

INMATES' MINDS.

THEY BELIEVE THESE PEOPLE

COULD ALSO BECOME THE

CHILDREN OF GOD ONE DAY.

GOD DOESN'T WANT TO

BREAK ANY RELATIONSHIPS,

EVEN WHEN THOSE PEOPLE

DON'T SEEM LOVABLE.

I ALSO SEE NO MATTER HOW

BROKEN OR TWISTED A LIFE

IS, WHEN GOD PICKS IT UP,

HE REALLY LOOKS FORWARD TO

BRINGING BACK THE

GREATNESS THAT WAS THERE

WHEN CREATION BEGAN.

Reporter: MUNG FE LI,

CBN NEWS.

Efrem: AND STAY WITH

US.

THERE IS MUCH MORE OF CBN

"NEWSWATCH" STRAIGHT

AHEAD.

Efrem: IT WAS THE

LARGEST MASS SHOOTING IN

U.S. HISTORY, BUT EVEN

DURING THAT TIME OF CHAOS,

THAT CITY SAW PEOPLE

COMING TOGETHER.

STEPHANIE RIGGS SHOWS US

HOW A COMMUNITY IS UNITING

TO FIGHT A SPIRITUAL

BATTLE AND WINNING.

Reporter: WHAT

HAPPENED HERE JUST A FEW

DAYS AGO HAS BROUGHT OUT

THE VERY BEST IN PEOPLE,

PEOPLE WHO RECOGNIZE THIS

IS NOT ABOUT JUST ONE MAN

UNLEASHING EVIL, BUT HOW

GOODNESS, KINDNESS, AND

FAITH HAVE TURNED TRAGEDY

INTO TRIUMPH.

THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF

THE FACES OF GOOD.

I'M HERE BECAUSE IT'S

THE ONLY THING I CAN THINK

TO DO RIGHT NOW, IS TO

GIVE BLOOD.

I THINK THERE ARE SO MANY

PEOPLE WANTING TO DO

SOMETHING AND WE DON'T

KNOW WHAT TO DO.

Reporter: COUNTLESS

FACES IN A CITY SHAKEN TO

ITS CORE.

EACH WILL TELL YOU THEY

HAD NO CHOICE TO RIGHT

THIS WRONG, INCLUDING PENN

OF PENN AND TELLER.

THIS BLOOD BANK HAS NOT

SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS

HAPPENING?

NEVER.

NOT EVEN DURING 9/11.

I HAVE BEEN IN A STATE OF

AWE.

Reporter: A RANDOM

ACT OF HORRIFIC VIOLENCE

SPARKED A SPONTANEOUS

MOVEMENT OF LOVE HERE.

THERE IS A LOT OF GOOD

IN THIS WORLD, AND THE

GOOD ALWAYS, ALWAYS

OUTWEIGHS THE BAD.

Reporter: EVERY DROP

OF BLOOD, PRAYER, AND THE

MILLION LITTLE ACTS OF

KINDNESS SHOWS THE WORLD

THAT DARKNESS WILL NOT

PREVAIL IN LAS VEGAS.
