Obama: 'This is a good day for America'

Before he awarded two posthumous Medals of Honor to Korean War veterans, President Obama today made his second public remarks about Osama Bin Laden's death, saying that the country had "kept its commitment to see that justice is done," and calling today "a good day for America."

He said that the country "is a better place because of the death of Osama Bin Laden" and praised the celebrations at the White House, Ground Zero and elsewhere as displays of patriotism.

"Today we are reminded that as a nation, there's nothing we can't do when we put our shoulders to the wheel, when we work together, when we remember the sense of unity that defines us as Americans," Obama said.
