Praying for a Better Tomorrow
Mass Prayer Meeting Planned for Tuesday, October 12, 2004.
While organizers of the "Gema Perdamaian (Voice of Peace)" mass rally insist they are not organizing a Bali bombing memorial event, the coincidental timing of the rally to fall on the 2nd anniversary of the Bali tragedy is not lost on those planning to participate in the event to be held in downtown Denpasar on Tuesday, October 12, 2004.Gema Perdamaian – Voice of Peace
An estimated 3,000 people are expected to gather at the Monument of the People's Struggle (Lapangan Monumen Perjuangan Rakyat Bali – Bajra Sandhi Renon) at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday to hear speeches and prayers offered by international and community figures. The event is open without charge to the public who are asked to bring a candle and single flower when attending the rally.
Many have asked why Bali was chosen for a mass demonstration in support of peace, when Bali is known as an island largely free of conflict. Those hosting the event have replied, pointing out that precisely because Bali is an island of tolerance where leaders of various religion can meet in a single forum makes it the ideal place to plant the seed for a world peace movement.
Their hope is that Bali's example presented in the "Voice of Peace" rally will spread beyond the island's border to other parts of Indonesia and the rest of the world.
A most timely idea, worthy of your support:
