Wicomico County, City of Salisbury Commemorate 9/11 Anniversary
SALISBURY, Md.- On the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Wicomico County Executive Rick Pollitt and City of Salisbury Mayor Jim Ireton chose to honor the occasion with a moment of silence and by placing a wreath in front of the Government Office Building to remember those that lost their lives and those that continue to heal.
"On this the 11th anniversary of the events of Sept. 11, 2001, I join Wicomico County Executive Richard M. Pollitt in lowering our flags at the Government Office Building," Ireton said. "The memory of the lives lost and sacrifices made will be written in our hearts and minds forever. In memory of all those affected, both living and dead, we pause and place a wreath at the base of our flags as a symbol of that sacrifice."
Pollitt said, "Although it's been 11 years since the shock and horror of that dark day in September, we continue to grieve the loss of innocent lives and the shared blow to our national sense of security. No further reminders are necessary to steel us in our resolve to protect our country and to fight for those God-given principles of freedom that keep us the greatest nation on earth.
"We will never cease to mourn the victims of 9/11 and we will always remember with respect and honor the sacrifice they made on that fateful day. I call upon all residents of Wicomico County to pause a moment or two today to reflect on the blessings of being American and to appreciate the tremendous cost of those blessings."
