Beyond fear - towards hope; An exhibition of the Iraq War
Friday, October 6, 2006 - 10:00am to 2:00pm
Packer Chapel Patio
Eyes Wide Open Across Pennsylvania is an exhibit that speaks directly to our hearts and reminds us of the human cost of war.   Over 120 pairs of empty combat boots--tagged with the names of PA. soldiers who have died in the current Iraq war--will be displayed, together with a visual representation of thousands of Iraqi civilians who have died during the conflict.  As of July 2006, PA has lost over 124 soldiers, the third highest state casualty count in the US.  There will be a brief opening ceremony followed by the reading of the names of the 124 soldiers.
Sponsored by the Progressive Student Alliance, the Chaplain's Office, the American Studies Program, the Newman Center, the Muslim Student Association, and Counseling and Psychological Services, ArtsLehigh, Humanities Center
