Breakfast Update - 17th November

The world was turned upside down in 2001, when the twin towers in New York were targeted by terrorists. A year later we were thrust into another tragedy with the loss of lives in the Bali bombings in 2002. That day changed the lives of so many, including that of this week's speaker, Nick Way who was the Channel Ten reporter on the scene at the time. Nick recalled those terrible hours after the bombings and what transpired for him and those of the survivors he's been in contact with since then. Tragedy. Horror. Disbelief. Anger. Antony Svilicich was one of the survivors of the Bali bombings, having received burns to 60% of his body. He accompanied Nick in sharing with us his experience in coming to terms with the tragedy and their shared quest to help create a lasting memorial to everyone who lost their lives that day. The Bali Peace Park is being planned to be erected on the site where the bombings in Bali occurred. Nick and Antony asked for ROC and all rotarians to lend their support to spread the word to get as many people on board as possible. We are urging YOU to visit
