Reminding those killed in Iraq War

In this photo you see thousands of little flags. These tiny flags are reminding you the lives lost in Iraq war since 2003. A white flag represents five Iraqis killed and one red flag represents five Americans died. At least 655,000 Iraqis (Durham et. al.) and 4,010 Americans (cnn.com) have died as a result of the March 2003 invasion of Iraq.

The exhibition is going on until 14th May on Valley Library quad, Oregon State University. The flags and information are brought to OSU by the Iraq Body Count Exhibit, which is a non-political organization that informs the public of the exact loss of life that has resulted in the past five years.
