BALI CINTA DAMAI : BALI LOVES PEACE NEW YORK MEMORIAL FOR BALI
November 15, 2002

Balinese Memorial Procession - Former World Trade Center Site to Battery Park.

On November 15, 2002, hundreds of memorial services will be held throughout the island of Bali to honor and mourn victims of the tragic bombing in Kuta on October 12. All of these services will take the form of a beautiful Hindu ceremony to symbolically cleanse the land and bring balance to the universe, while helping to free the spirits of the victims to reenter the cycle of life.

In a sincere and solemn gesture of worldwide solidarity, the Balinese will be performing this traditional ceremony simultaneously at the former World Trade Center in New York followed by a Gamelan Procession to Battery Park.

The bombing in Bali has - much like September 11 - scarred not only a local community, but touched the people of many nations. It is the intent of the Balinese to honor those that have passed at the hands of terrorists and to stand together in solidarity with those who have lost friends and loved ones throughout the world.
