Eyes Wide Open

Eyes Wide Open Across Pennsylvania, part of the AFSC’s widely acclaimed exhibit on the human cost of war, features one pair of military boots for every Pennsylvanian casualty in Iraq and 50 pairs of civilian shoes, tagged with Iraqi names, representing the 50:1 ratio of Iraqi to US casualties in the current conflict. As of July 2006 Pennsylvania has lost over 124 soldiers, the third highest state casualty count in the US.
