"The girl in the photograph"
http://www.kimfoundation.com/en /

I went to hear Kim Phuc speak this evening. The girl in the photograph in the Vietnam War - running from the Napalm.

It was really moving to hear her and to know that she is a survivor is the best sense of the word.

She has a foundation to help war injured children.

1. All survivors of that war, Americans included, should be as well-adjusted
... as Kim Phuc.

I will NEVER forget that image, never.

6. i spent 3 days at a conference for peace and social justice with her and
the pilot that dropped the napalm bomb on her village and killed her family and burnt her...the workshop was "reconsilation" and she forgave the man...it was a powerful testiment to forgiveness...she is an awesome women...i am glad you got to hear her speak.

8. Thanks for posting
Always when you go to war this is the result. Civilian suffering. Thinking back to the mindless cheerleading and censorship before Iraq (and even now) you just get sick.
