It was 40 years ago on June 8th, 1972, that Associated Press photographer Huynh Cong “Nick” Ut snapped the iconic black-and-white image of the young girl running down the road naked and burning from napalm. I was seven years old when this photo was taken, and I cannot recall when I saw it for the first time. But this image is one that I grew up with – almost as though it has always been in my memories. Whenever I see this photo, I have often wondered what happened to this poor child – I always assumed that she had died from her burns. Not so. Today I was pleasantly surprised to read about how she survived and what she has endured the past 40 years.
