soldiers who have died in the current Iraq war.
Held at San Lorenzo Park, 137 Dakota St, Santa Cruz, CA
Sunday, May 10, 2009, Exhibit:10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m
Ceremony: 3:00 p.m.

A deeply moving memorial exhibit commemorating all the California soldiers killed thus far in Iraq. A pair of combat boots for each military man or woman from California who was killed in Iraq will be on display along with civilian shoes, each representing Iraqi citizens killed in the conflict.

Mother's Day was originally a protest against war by mothers who said they did not want to send their husbands and sons into battle to kill other women's husbands and sons. This exhibit is a reminder of the human cost of war. It's an opportunity to bless, honor and mourn military personnel and civilians who have died in the conflict in Iraq.

The Eyes Wide Open exhibit is a project of the American Friends Service Committee. This Santa Cruz visit is co-sponsored by the Santa Cruz Friends Meeting, First Congregational Church Santa Cruz, Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (Santa Cruz and Pajaro Valley), United Nations Association Santa Cruz and the Resource Center for Nonviolence.

Volunteers are needed to help with set-up and taking down the exhibit. Coantact Barbara at 831-423-1626 X105 or barbara [at] greybird.com
