We Remember 9/11 and Kleber Rolando Molina

Five years have past. So much life taken. The memories and horrors still haunt our nation and determine its direction. Some have turned away, as if it never happened. Some have been dealing with the reality of loved ones who will never return. Almost 3000 lives have been reduced to a simple list. We fail to stop and see the individuals who perished in tragedy on September 11, 2001. Today, each person will once again be seen as an individual. Today, I join thousands of Bloggers who dedicate a post to the individuals who paid the ultimate price to awake a sleeping giant. My hope is that this tribute will once again kindle a fire in the heart of America.

Kleber Rolando Molina
of New York, NY
Age: 44
He worked as a Fiduciary Trust.
He left behind his wife.

Kleber grew up in Jersey City and his friends share fond memories of him and his love of life. He became a disco fanatic as a teen and dreamed of being a DJ. Kleber was working hard to improve himself by taking management classes at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey.

Kleber and his dreams are no longer with us, but the hopes of those left behind linger. Little is known about his life and family. May we offer a prayer for his family and friends. May God be remembered on this day, and may those who suffered loss be comforted.

Let us remember Kleber and how he was taken from us. Let us rededicate our nation to triumphing over terrorism and promoting freedom. Today, thank a soldier and their family for acting on your behalf. The battles must be won!

Thank you for this tribute; reading it renewed my sadness from yesterday. At last night's memorial service at the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, the attendees were asked to take one of almost 3000 candles, each marked with a name of someone lost on Sept. 11. I was honored to be able to light a candle identified with Mr. Molina's name and thus to remember someone I hadn't known before, and to keep his memory treasurered. Your tribute allowed me to know more about him, and his family and friends will be regularly in my thoughts now. As Lincoln concluded his Gettysburg speech, "It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
