    AP 'napalm girl' photo from Vietnam War turns 40


    In the picture, the girl will always be 9 years old and wailing "Too hot! Too hot!" as she runs down the road away from her burning Vietnamese village. It only took a second for Associated Press photographer Huynh Cong "Nick" Ut to snap the iconic black-and-white image 40 years ago. It communicated the horrors of the Vietnam War in a way words could never describe, helping to end one of the most divisive wars in American history.

    More at link with the picture....one I will never forget....

    From Reader's link above:

    After four decades, Phuc, now a mother of two sons, can finally look at the picture of herself running naked and understand why it remains so powerful. It had saved her, tested her and ultimately freed her.

    "Most of the people, they know my picture but there's very few that know about my life," she said. "I'm so thankful that ... I can accept the picture as a powerful gift. Then it is my choice. Then I can work with it for peace."
    I'm so happy that she has found peace and happiness in her life.

    Kim Phuc, 52, is working with a new charity called Restoring Heroes to help provide medical treatment to members and veterans of those same U.S. military forces.

    Restoring Heroes is targeting first responders and members of the military who have suffered traumatic burns and scarring, such as wounds caused by improvised explosive devices. The importance of forgiveness is Phuc's contribution to healing them.
