This exhibit effectively conveys the horrors of terrorism. It is a "must see" for health workers as well as lay people. It might even move those who, in the past, have been reluctant to condemn terrorist attacks that have targeted Israelis.

This was a fascinating and disturbing exhibit.
It is just what it is, presented without comment –
but it is moving and effective art.

This is a very moving and powerful exhibit. It contains a graphic visual message to reinforce the need to affirm justice and compassion among all people.

Stunning work. I very much appreciate your attempting to turn our focus from the political drama of ages to the intimate experiences of the victims themselves. You have made these individuals real to me. I love the use of framing that shows you images of yourself; their pain is not their own.
Thank you for presenting this at Gordon

Your exhibit made terrorism something real and human for me. Before terrorism was just a word describing something bad happening in our world today. The exhibit helped me to understand how this is actually affecting people’s lives. As I looked at the pictures I imagined how I would feel if these were X-rays of my boyfriend, my mother, a friend. Terrorism affects real people, not just politics and governments. Thank you for helping me to understand that. You have spoken for all those who no longer have a voice. Thank you and God bless your efforts!

Diane – I am refreshed to see that a voice has been given to those who may not have one. The work that is being done is a close-up and personal reality that should be faced. Perhaps seeing people as individuals is the way to begin.

Truth is something that must be defended and protected. The truth that Terrorism is absolutely unacceptable is a truth necessary to continue life in security. I’d encourage you to show this project any and everywhere you can.

It was a really moving exhibit. Not only was it a really creative idea, but I think it is an issue that people need to be more aware of. Thank you for sharing it with us.

This is such an amazing way to relay terrorism to people who have never experienced it firsthand before. I was shaken at the pictures that I saw and couldn’t believe how real they were. I wish more people could get this experience because it can really open your eyes to the world.

I have looked at this exhibit at least 3 times and it is so poignant. Who would have thought that X-rays and CT scans could be so impactful? It’s one thing to hear about the terrorist bombings on the news and even all of the numbers of casualties, but there’s something intimate and provocative about X-rays of real people who have survived such devastating disasters.

Even after spending fifteen minutes in the “spa” in the next room, this was very silencing. I have very little to say about this exhibit but am thinking and feeling plenty. Reading the stories and explanations took me, for moments at a time, into pieces of the horror of each of these humans, bodies, souls. A nearly literal stun to the mind.
This was shocking. I have looked at it various times and every time I see new mind blowing features of the work. It is interesting that you brought this here ‘cause people don’t think or even know this kind of stuff happens daily in other parts of the world. It was amazing. Eye opening.
What a fascinating idea. I have never seen a project with this focus before. It is a unique perspective. Very well put together and very thought provoking.
— Kristen Schaertel
This project is amazing – not in the sense that it was beautiful or great like amazing usually means – but in the sense that it really brings up a lot of terrifying thoughts of just how real this issue is.
It’s just so horrible to think that these people were just going about their everyday lives, riding the bus. Not realizing that five minutes later their world would be blown apart.
