Cemetery of Negativism
I was in Baguio last weekend and I stopped by the Cemetery of Negativism out of curiosity, also known as the Lost Cemetery in Camp John Hay. The cemetery where the world’s negativism is buried for all of us was designed by then camp Base Commander Major John Hightower.
I loved the welcome message by Hightower at the entrance of this cemetery on a hill. Here’s an excerpt of the message:
“Those who rest here have died not in vain – but for you a stern reminder. As you leave this hill remember that the rest of your life. Be more positive.”
Here are the tombs that I’m sometimes guilty of (and should be remained buried forever and have no afterlife!):
