A homeless man, who said he preferred not to be identified, took time this morning to relight all the candles at a memorial for victims of the Orlando shooting.

The man, carrying a sleeping mat and several bags, knelt in front of rainbow flags and bouquets of flowers and used a candle to pass its flame on to the others, in the video taken by ABC News today.

Memorials and vigils have taken place all over the world since the massacre at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando early Sunday morning in which 49 people were killed by suspected gunman Omar Mateen and another 53 injured, according to authorities.
