The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) will honor fallen U.S. military personnel and Iraqi civilians with its traveling memorial display: Eyes Wide Open: The Human Cost of War, which will be on display at the National Cathedral on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, January 17, and at the National City Christian Church from January 19-21.

AFSC, an international social justice organization, created Eyes Wide Open to memorialize the lives lost in the war in Iraq. In addition to the more than 1300 pairs of boots, a 24-foot ?wall? of names and incidents of Iraqi civilian deaths confirmed during the conflict and 1000 pairs of shoes representing a small fraction of the Iraqi civilians killed in the war are also on display.

On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, January 17, 2005, Eyes Wide Open will be inside the Washington National Cathedral.
