I took these photos at Frederick’s Days of Reflection On the Human Cost of War, organized by Women in Black Frederick, in conjunction with other groups.
The most engrossing part of the event was the display of combat boots representing the 40 members of the military from Maryland who have died while fighting the war against Iraq. I took my turn standing, doing a silent vigil, next to the boots on the steps of the Evangelical Reformed United Church of Christ in downtown Frederick, Maryland.
I wrote about the experience in a Blogcritics article.
Here is some of what I saw while there.
