Obama: "What will be remembered are the good people"

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. President Barack Obama on Sunday traveled to Colorado and offered hope and comfort to victims of the gunman who killed 12 people and wounded 58 in a Denver-area movie theater. The mass murder early on Friday shocked the nation, dominating the news. Obama said he had listened to stories about those who were killed during visits and those who risked their lives to help others. "They assure us that out of this darkness a brighter day is going to come," Obama said at the University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora, Colorado. After justice was done, memory would focus on the victims, not the killer, he said. Obama met privately with the families of the victims. He said afterward in a televised address that he told them that the nation was watching and shared their grief. He spoke shortly before a memorial service by the community.
