Celebrations in many forms have blanketed the Portland area and the world this past week, as the world commemorated the bicentenary of the birth of the Bab on October 29, followed a day later by the 202nd anniversary of the birth of Baha’u’llah.
“72 hours, one world: Over the course of three rotations of the Earth, humanity on every land commemorated the anniversaries of the births of the Bab and Baha’u’llah. These days of commemoration offer a glimpse into a humanity that is rarely, if ever, so profoundly depicted in its oneness. Neither borders, nor conflicts between nations, nor prejudices of class, race, religion, or culture, were able in the least to obscure the reality that all humanity is one.” from https://news.bahai.org
