At the start of the morning, I thought I would start my fast but as the day progressed, I started to think about my reasons for fasting. If I were Muslim in a predominantly Muslim country, it would make sense to maintain my religious views. As I am not Muslim, I feel that while I would like to stand in solidarity with those who are fasting, at the end of the day, I still question why I am fasting. In other words, While those around me break fast, I don't see the purpose of why I am fasting. This does not mean that I am not going to be culturally sensitive, it just means that I am seeing the process of fasting from a different point of view.
