First Day in Boston

The voice on the cell phone kept saying, "Who did all of this? Who did all of this?" The voice was of an AFSC Boston staff person who has known since January who created Eyes Wide Open. What she was expressing was the usual added excitement of seeing the exhibition in person. You can read about it, see photos of it, but once you stand amid the boots and read the names of the Iraqi civilians killed by U.S. bombings, it takes on a whole new depth.

Seeing the names of children 7 or 8 or 9 years old killed by Cruise missles or cluster bombs, reading the ages of the U.S. soldiers on the tags of the boots, brings the whole cost of war into your mind and heart in a way that surprises and makes you want to call someone to share your experience.
