Let’s be happy today! smile-01

No, I’m not at SDCC. LOL 😀 but I have friends that have gone, and I might get a few goodies…. pretty please, I’ve been good. I promise! 😉 But otherwise, I’m enjoying the pix that they are sharing on Social Media, it’s almost like being there, without the crowds. Woot!

Once again, it’s about perspective. 😉 dang that pesky perspective. lol So I’m in rainy, rainy, yep rainy Indiana. But on the other hand, I’m not fighting a humongous crowd in SDCC. I get to see all the pretties, and hear/well read, all the good stuff, and I’m not fighting a humongous crowd.

Plus at the end of the month, it’s Gen Con! WooHOOOO! and that’s why my background is full of dice. Get it? LOL 😀

Martyrdom of The Bab
July 9, 2015 in the World
The Martyrdom of the Bab, which is a very big date in the Baha’i calendar, takes place each year on July 9th. As its name suggests, this is a solemn occasion when Baha’i community all over the world commemorate the date in 1850 when the Bab was executed.
The Bab, who declared himself the messenger of the God in 1844, is one of the two important figures of the founding of Baha’i Faith. He attracted thousands of followers to his faith. However, the leaders of the state region in Persia at that time did not approve of his beliefs. Therefore, as an attempt to crush this religion, the authorities decided put the Bab to death by firing squad on July 9, 1850. Later on, on the exact date each year, commemoration is held to mark the anniversary of The Martyrdom of the Bab. This day is one of the 9 holy days of the year of Baha’i.
On this occasion, people have a day off. No work or school is allowed. The commemoration is also associated with people gathering and reading special prayers at noon, which is the time when the execution of the Bab took place in 1850.
