Few people know her name, but almost everyone knows her picture.
A little child burned by napalm, running naked and screaming across a Vietnamese street. Since then, today's 55-year-old Kim Phuc Phan Thi is the "girl in the photo" or "The Napalm Girl". She is engaged as a Goodwill Ambassador of UNESCO, founded a foundation for war-tainted children and speaks to thousands of people every year. And if you listen to her when she, who still suffers from the napalm attack of that day, is speaking about reconciliation, It is an admonishing example of denying any hate. A testimony of absolutely human greatness, especially in times of increasing hate and inhumanity
