This is making the rounds on social media, and it demands to be seen: an extraordinary tale of faith and mercy. It tells of what happened to the “napalm girl” in the iconic photograph from the Vietnam War.

From the CBC: 

“Forgiveness set my heart free.” — Phan Thị Kim Phúc’s life changed forever on June 8, 1972 at the age of nine. Known as “the napalm girl,” the Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph taken of her at Trảng Bàng exposed the world to the savagery of the Vietnam War. Nearly 50 years later, Kim Phúc offers her Brief But Spectacular take on her relationship with forgiveness and that girl in the picture.

“Love your enemies, pray for your persecutors.” It takes great courage to live those words as completely and as selflessly as Kim Phúc has. Her life is a towering witness to the Gospel.
