9780987408105: Shock Waves

You're young, in love, and in paradise ... surfing, traveling, partying. Then in one terrifying wave of heat and noise your reality shatters into a million pieces that can never be put back together. On October 12, 2002, a massive car bomb ripped through the popular Kuta nightclub, the Sari Club, killing 202 people and maiming many others. Hanabeth Luke was hamming it up on the dance floor to cheesy pop tunes with a friend when a loud bang, like a car back-firing, momentarily silenced the music and dimmed the lights. Dancers stopped and heads turned, but the music and flashing lights soon came back on and the party resumed. But only for a few seconds ... "The noise which came next I will never forget. It was an empty sound that did not resonate. It was a thud, like the slam of a car door, but multiplied to a volume I simply cannot describe," Hanabeth writes in this extraordinary memoir. Hanabeth survived the Bali Bomb, somehow crawling through the flaming wreckage and using fallen electrical cables to shimmy over a four metre high concrete wall. But her boyfriend Marc Gajardo was killed instantly in the blast. The heart-wrenching story of young love, and lives, cut short is chilling and confronting,. Her raw and honest account of those dreadful events brings the spectre of terrorism into sharp and intensely personal focus. Yet it is the story of what Hanabeth has done since which brings a spark of hope and light to this awful chapter in our history. Confronting world leaders, campaigning for peace and against the war on terror, raising money and awareness, resolving to squeeze the most from every day, Hanabeth's inspirational tale provides a stirring case study in survival and healing.

About the Author:

I was born in the UK, but my surfing parents quickly set in play a pendulum swing of annual migration following the summers between Byron Bay, Australia and my little Cornish village, St. Agnes, always via the tropical paradise of Bali in Indonesia.
Basically my life has continued much the same, and I still live between three worlds. My perspective of the world was changed drastically when I was caught up in the Bali bomb blast of 2002, whilst dancing to a cheesy pop song in the Sari Club. My partner Marc Gajardo was killed instantly and somehow I climbed out and escaped with no physical injuries greater than skin deep. Marc was 30, and I was just 22 years old. Unbeknown to me a photograph was taken of me leading 17yo Tom Singer away from the fires, which became the iconic image of the bombing and suddenly I found myself speaking to the international media, campaigning for peace in the lead up to the Iraq war. Always, I have sought to try to understand why anyone can hold such hatred to cause such devastation to young and innocent lives, and their families and friends, pleading with world leaders to seek peaceful solutions to global issues.It has been a long journey to find my full strength, focus and determination to keep going and to make the world a better place in any way I can each day, even if it is as simple as sharing a smile. It has not always been easy, but I realise that each and every one of us have our challenges to overcome.Right now I'm based in Byron Bay teaching at Southern Cross University and working on my PhD, which involves investigating perspectives of the coal seam gas industry. I can't quite believe how lucky I am to still be learning, teaching, surfing, and dancing, playing music and enjoying each day for the precious gift that it is. It has taken me a decade to write my story, and it is the raw truth of my experience, at every step of the way.  I hope you enjoy reading it.
