Eyes Wide Open: Interfaith Reflections

Eyes Wide Open, the American Friends Service Committee's widely-accalimed exhibition on the human cost of the Iraq War, features a pair of boots honoring each U.S. military casualty and a field of shoes to memoralize the Iraqis killed in the conflict.  Eyes Wide Open has toured to over 100 cities across the U.S. and has been visited by hundreds of thousands of people.
