ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. President Barack Obama spoke at Arlington National Cemetery calling the cemetery "a reflection of America itself," in a Memorial Day address. He said, "The cemetery is more than a final resting place for fallen heroes. It is a reflection of America itself. A reflection of our history, the wars we've waged for democracy, the peace we've laid to preserve it. It is a reflection of our diversity, of people from different races and creeds who fought for the ideals than bind us as one nation."
