Lost in the debate over the U.S. role in Afghanistan is the significant toll the war has taken on Afghan civilians. The American Friends Service Committee hopes Thursday’s “Windows and Mirrors” art exhibit will help to shine a light on the thousands of Afghan civilians killed since the U.S. attacked Afghanistan nine years ago.
