The early Egyptians worshipped it. Inca tribes bowed down to it. The Tiv people of Africa consider it to be the son of a supreme 'being'.

Sunrise Times

Throughout history our sun has been regarded of a source of faith, glory, life and light. Every day, without fail it rises in the east, and sets in the west, just like clockwork. Our daily lives are literally ruled by the sun.

The impending dawn signals the start of the day, and dusk welcomes in the twilight, followed by the mysterious dark night that welcomes in the nocturns and night owls, and says a sleepy 'goodnight' to those with weary eyes.
