However, while death is investable; the sad reality of life is that most people die before living their purpose on planet earth. They die raw; carrying all deposits of gifts that God had given them to use to change this world. Dr. Myles Egbert Munroe (OBE), was quoted many times during his sermons warning people not to die with their gifts. He explained the “wealthness” of the cemetery because of people who die with all their untapped potential. “The wealthiest places in the world are not gold mines, oil fields, diamond mines or banks. The wealthiest place is the cemetery. There lies companies that were never started, masterpieces that were never painted... In the cemetery there is buried the greatest treasure of untapped potential. There is a treasure within you that must come out. Don't go to the grave with your treasure still within YOU”, he explained in one of his sermons.

 To understand the unpredictability of life, let’s explore the painful short-lived life of one American girl and see the impact she left on planet earth.

JonBenét Patricia Ramsey was a six year old American child beauty queen who was brutally murdered in her family's home in Boulder, Colorado Springs, United States of America; on the Christmas day of 25 December 1996. A handwritten ransom note, requesting $118,000; was found in the house, and JonBenét's father, John, found her crushed body in the basement of their home about eight hours after she had been reported missing. JonBenét sustained a broken skull from a blow to the head and had been strangled to death with a garrotte that was found tied around her neck. The case generated global attention and still remains unresolved up until today.

Despite her short-lived earthly life; at six years of age JonBenét has already won five beauty pageant titles and go nominations in many others. She lived a purposeful in those six years!!
