BAGUIO CITY: Cemetery of Negativism

 The Lost Cemetery of Negativism is one spot in Camp John Hay that I keep on visiting .. I find it funny and at the same time with sense. :)

Written on the entrance:
"Negativism is man's greatest self imposed infliction, his most limiting factor, his heaviest burden. No more for here is buried the world's negativism for all time. 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.
Have a good day! Treat today like its your last though its the first of the rest."  - CJH

The area is just a small hill and part of the Camp John Hay Historical Core. It looks like a pet cemetery because more of the tombstones are represented with animal figures. It was founded by Major John Hightower. Back in the 80's, the American soldiers and employees that are stationed at Camp John Hay were asked to think of a negative attitudes. And all those negative attitudes must be buried in the cemetery and to complete the act they even have a mock funeral.
