Eyes Wide Open: The Human Cost of War Comes to San Francisco

 
Eyes Wide Open is a traveling memorial that exhibits a pair of empty combat boots for each of the over 1500 American soldiers who have died in combat in the Iraq war. The boots are tagged with the names of the soldiers. There is also a wall of names to memorialize the Iraqis who have been killed. The Eyes Wide Open Exhibit is a project of the American Friends Service Committee and many co-sponsors.
