BALI BOMBING MEMORIAL 2011

  • 2015/03/22

It has been nine years since the 2002 Bali Bombing of October 12. This year the commemoration was held at ground zero, Legian, Kuta. All KIDS’ families gathered together at the monument. Led by Haji Bambang, the families made a circle in front of the monument and they prayed together for the spirits of the victims and for their lives. They prayed so that they could move on with their lives and one of KIDS’ children, Bagus Aryadana (left), read poetry for his beloved late father.

A Letter for Papa

One and half years old I was at that moment,
I never understood the meaning of tragedy,
I never understood the meaning of my mum’s tear,
It has been nine years now,
My waiting never end,
I could hear the story only from my mum
That my father cared and loved me so much
And I could hear the story only from my brother
That my father spoiled me much
But, I kept waiting for his coming
To bring me a nice toy

At the age of eleven years old,
Now I know and understand,
The tragedy has separated me, my mum, and my brother from you, oh my beloved father for forever.
No chance anymore to show my respect to you,
No chance anymore to kiss your hands,
You had returned to your creator

Today, I stand here,
At the same place and on the same date,
when you were fighting to keep alive.
Here, I give you my promise,
I will look after my mum for you my father.
I will try my best to achieve my goal that is inspired by your goal
That will make me to become a faithful son
I will never stop praying for you
I pray that you will always have peace at God’s side
As proof of my love and respect to you
