The Richest Place in the World

"The richest spot on the face of the earth cannot be found in the diamond mines of South Africa...It is not in the oil fields of Saudi Arabia. No, the richest plot of land on this planet is in your very own neighbourhood...It’s the cemetery...The graveyard is the wealthiest place in all of creation. Beneath those rectangular pieces of sod lie countless unsung melodies and unwritten poems. The grassy plots overflow with brilliant ideas that could have transformed entire communities, rehabilitated the lost and brought hope to the weary. Our burial grounds reek with unattained successes and unrealized dreams."

(--Wayne Cordeiro, Dream Releasers).
