A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
potter's field(POT-uhrs feeld)
noun: A burial place for poor or unidentified people.
The term derives from the name of the area where Judas was buried after he hanged himself. The land was bought with pieces of silver he had received for betraying Jesus.
"The potter's fields are full. There are so many dead that there is
nowhere left to put them [people who died crossing the desert from
Mexico into the US]."
Who has not for the sake of his reputation sacrificed himself? -Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche, philosopher (1844-1900)
