:: october theme day- LINES ::



this is a picture i took at a "eyes wide open across pennsylvania" event in phoenixville, pa (just outside philadelphia) ... in 2006-2007 i worked for the AFSC based out of pittsburgh, pa... as a peace advocacy organization we worked in many areas promoting peace and understanding... one of the areas which i headed up was the "eyes wide open"... this profound exhibit travels across pennsylvania displaying a pair of military boots representing each pennsylvania soldier to be killed in the war in iraq... at this time pa has lost 189 young men and women... the exhibit demonstrates in a very tangible way the cost of war ... many states are now presenting the exhibit and if anyone ever has a chance to go it is a powerful and important experience
