War Memorial

Pedestrians in downtown Chicago look through a window at Loyola University where 570 combat boots, representing American soldiers killed in Iraq, are arranged as part of a multimedia exhibit, ``Eyes Wide Open.'' The exhibit, which opened on Thursday and marks the one-year anniversary of the start of the war, emphasizes the human costs of the conflict. A few feet away from the boots is a plowshare. On the plowshare and behind it are more than 10,000 shiny gold-colored bullet casings. American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker peace and social justice group, said each one represents an Iraqi civilian killed since the war started.Mar 20, 2004
