We stand together today in our remembrance of lives lost and our resolve to always fight for peace and freedom. Confronted by tragedy we grew closer; confronted by our enemies we grew stronger. Our will was tested and we stood proudly as one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Sheriff Coffey and the CCSO take this moment to honor the 9/11 victims and reaffirm our promise to protect Charles County. Time has not erased our scars but neither has it weakened our fight.
