Eyes Wide Open on Founders Green
The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) in cooperation with Haverford College's Center for Peace and Global Citizenship and the Quaker Community of Haverford College honored fallen U.S. military personnel and Iraqi civilians with its traveling exhibition: Eyes Wide Open: The Cost of War to Pennsylvania, which was on display at Haverford College on Tuesday, April 8th. Pennsylvania has the third highest number of causalities in the country.
Eyes Wide Open: The Cost of War to Pennsylvania focuses on the specific costs of war to the state. The exhibit includes 183 pairs of boots representing fallen servicemen and women from Pennsylvania, and a visual representation of the Iraqi civilian casualties. This exhibit is part of AFSC's national Eyes Wide Open: The Human Cost of War network.
Maria McMath and her Introduction to Peace and Conflict Studies class toured the exhibit.
