Because of the growing number of U.S. casualties, the Eyes Wide Open National Exhibit has become too large for the American Friends Service Committee to tour.
Instead, the AFSC will split the exhibit into 50 state exhibits to continue the work of bringing Eyes Wide Open into smaller communities across the country. Working with AFSC offices, Quaker meetings and peace groups across the country, the state exhibits feature the boots of the soldiers from their home states in addition to a memorial to the Iraqi civilian casualties.
This traveling exhibit is a memorial to those who have fallen and a witness to our belief that no war can justify its human cost.
