Statements and Reflections on 9/11 by County Executive Rushern L. Baker and the public safety leaders of Prince George’s County:

 

“As we commemorate the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, I ask all Prince George’s County residents to keep the victims’ families and friends in their thoughts and prayers.   Prince George’s County lost 23 residents September 11th and they will never to be forgotten.   

 

As I reflect on that very unfortunate day, I am reminded of the unity that was exhibited across this great nation and of course, right here in Prince George’s County.  Across the region our fire, police, first responders and countless volunteers came together to lend a helping and humane hand in the wake of this disaster.  We were shaken beyond words but stood up again – because we had each other’s shoulders to lean on and build upon.  Our patriotism and bond prevailed and we grew stronger. 

 

Today, we still suffer from the profound loss of our loved ones but our unity of purpose has kept us on course and made us a stronger county, state and country. We will continue to protect and pledge our allegiance to this great land.  We will always remember the victims, and heroes that heeded the call.  We will continue to move forward developing and implementing effective protective measures to safeguard our citizens from the tyranny of others.”

-Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III

 

“This anniversary of the 9-11 tragedy is a sobering time for the country and the world. The ceremony and ritual of remembering those we lost reconnects us to the families who lost loved ones and to each other as a reminder, not so much of how they died, but of how they lived.”

-Sheriff Melvin C. High

 

"As we mark this 10th anniversary of the devastating terrorist attacks against our nation, let us remember all of the people who gave their lives in service to our country that day and every day since.  From first responders to everyday people who gave of themselves to save others - 23 of whom were from Prince George's County; we must not only remember them and their families but we must also remain ever vigilant in the battle against hate, intolerance and terror."

–State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks
