Rest In Peace

“Remember, you are dust, And to dust you will return.” -The Bible
The Bible says, “The souls of the just are in God's hands.” No one is physically immortal; everybody will die. This is an eternal truth. This is why people wish to remain pure, above suffering, discrimination, violence and despair.
The graveyard is a boundary. The graveyard is a solitary and sacred place. At times of mourning, it is the place we seek consolation for the loss of our loved ones. According to religious/social norms, three and a half feet of deep ground is the permanent home of the dead. Within these boundaries, all are equal, regardless of their material wealth in life. When we throw soil onto the dead, we realise that the same thing will happen to us all.
The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed or All Souls' Day is observed in the Catholic Church in November.
