(10/18/2004)

The tragic bombing of October 12, 2002 was marked in Bali in a variety of ways during the week of its second anniversary.

The Bali Bombing Monument

Police closed roads for a 24-hour period leading up to "ground zero" and the commemoration ceremonies held at the newly inaugurated Bali bombing memorial on Tuesday, October 12, 2004, the anniversary of the bombing. During that day hundreds of mourners, many comprised of family and friends of the 202 people who died in the terrorist attack, gathered before the monument to hear songs, prayers, poems and speeches honoring the dead and condemning the perpetrators of the travesty.

Later that same day, people gathered again at the monument for a candlelight vigil that culminated at 11:15 p.m., the exact hour of the original blast.

The monument is a marble edifice standing near the bomb site based on a traditional Balinese design which incorporates a fountain and the 22 flags representing each of the countries who lost citizens in the attack. The monument also features the engraved names of all those who died near the site.

Gema Perdamaian

At a separate area of Bali, in the administrative sub-district of Renon thousands of people carrying candles and flowers gathered on the same Tuesday starting from 4:30 p.m. at the Monumen Bajra Sandhi. People came in traditional dress reflecting all of Indonesia's major cultural and religious groups. Spiritual songs, prayers and dances were presented – all celebrating the differences that enrich the world and should form the basis of peace among all people.

Songs were performed by Indonesian folk star, Franku Sahilatua and a speech calling for peace and unity was read on behalf of Bali's Governor. The ceremony closed with the ringing of a peace gong by Bali's Chief of Police, Irjen I Made Pastika and the release of balloons and doves by representatives of all religious groups found in Bali.
