Eyes wide open

A solemn reminder of this tragic human cost.

Since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, more than 4,000 American soldiers have been killed—approximately 450 from California alone. On May 5 and 6, with the “Eyes Wide Open” exhibit, the campus community was given a solemn reminder of this tragic human cost. Sponsored by Campus Ministry, the traveling exhibit was created by the American Friends Service Committee. One pair of boots representing each fallen soldier from California, as well as shoes representing Iraqi civilian deaths, were arranged in a labyrinth for a walking meditation.
