From Harford County government:
Harford County Government is paying a special tribute to the historic tragedies which struck America on September 11, 2001, by displaying a special “9/11 Remembrance Flag” at the County Administration Building in Bel Air. The flag, which was donated to Harford County Government by the Daughters of the American Revolution, will be flown in front of the County Administration Building for the entire month of September.
“The events of September 11, 2001 had a profound effect on all Americans and continue to resound today,” stated Harford County Executive David R. Craig. “We are humbled and honored by the donation of this very special flag from the Daughters of the American Revolution and will fly it with pride in memory of those who lost their lives that horrific morning. It is the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the freedom that Americans have enjoyed for more than 200 years that came under attack on that fateful day in September 2001, not just buildings or landmarks,” County Executive Craig remarked.
County Executive Craig also urges everyone to take time to salute our “domestic defenders”, the men and women of law enforcement, fire and rescue personnel as well as Homeland Security specialist in our nation’s never-ending fight against the war on terror.
“Moving forward, may the citizens of Harford County, and throughout the State of Maryland, never forget the sacrifices of the men and women who have served or are currently serving in our armed forces, standing guard over the United States of America,” County Executive Craig stated.
