happy ending- napalm girl


I know I haven't been keeping up with my blog but I wanted to post this article. As someone with a daughter from Vietnam this story brought tears to my eyes. I'm sure we've all seen the truly horrifying photo taken during the Vietnam war of the little girl running naked through the street screaming with her body covered in napalm burns. This is an article about what she's doing today. This article gives me such peace to know that she's okay and the work she does now to help others. And seeing the above photo of her beautiful smiling face is such a contrast to the photo taken during that war- it puts a lump in my throat!
