Baltimore and 9/11

Eyes Wide Open appeared at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore over the anniversary of September 11th. With the help of the organization September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, the memorial remembered the Iraqi civilians and U.S. military personnel killed in the Iraq War.

The Peaceful Tomorrows folks are relatives of those killed in the World Trade Center and Pentagon tragedies. But they are totally against the war in Afghanistan and Iraq. They do not believe in vengeance and killing more innocent civilians in retaliation for 9/11.

Johns Hopkins is also a perfect location because its School of Public Health issued a report last December concluding that 100,000 additional deaths of Iraqis occurred due to the war. That is, of course, over 30 times the number of deaths that this nation suffered on 9/11 in a country 1/12 the size of the U.S. And their 9/11 is not one day, but continues now.

For more Baltimore photos.

Hey, excellent website. A great Iraq resource is Deaths in Iraq. It breaks all of the casualties down by age, race, branch of the military, country, etc.
