Bismarck, ND – Hundreds of people came to the North Dakota State Capitol's Memorial Hall this afternoon for a short noontime prayer service.
High school choirs and bands from Bismarck provided the music -- and two National Guard chaplains provided scripture readings and prayer.
North Dakota Governor John Hoeven organized the prayer service:
"There's no question that there's hurting going on in our land now. We're strong and we are resolute and we will overcome."
