dawn of a new day

Baha'is worldwide woke up before sunrise to have their breakfast yesterday. and today, and tomorrow, and the day after too. From March 2nd to March 20th, we observe what's known as the 19-day Fast - no food or drink from sunup 'til sundown. It's a time to practice detachment from material things and to refocus ourselves on our spiritual development. One other thing it does is make you aware of the quiet, glorious beauty of the sunrise.
