Eyes Wide Open Permanent Display

Thanks to the creativity of some local peace activists in Highland Park, IL just north of Chicago, the Eyes Wide Open Memorial has been made into a semi-permanent display.

For a month the display has been in a downtown park area. It consists of 27 pairs of boots at different levels -- each boot representing a different state or U.S. territory. Behind the boots are two panels of names of the fallen. On the floor of the display are shoes representing the Iraqi dead.

Each week for four weeks the ;pcal peace activisits have read the names of the newly fallen and added them to the display. In the month the memorial was displayed, they added 47 new names.
