AFSC's 'ONE DAY OF THE IRAQ WAR' at First Baptist Church

To bring home to us the cost of the Iraq war in terms that each of can relate to, AFSC lent us their new exhibit consisting of five tall free-standing banners, each itemizing what the cost of one day of the war costs Americans. Some examples:

95,364 Head Start Places for children,
34,904 4-year scholarships for university students
84 new elementary schools

For more information, http://www.afsc.org/cost/default.htm or IBieri@afsc.org

Here is how the exhibit looked at the First Riverhead Baptist Church this week. Please visit it soon before it returns to NYC.
