of 9 year old Phan Thi Kim Phuc
(often referred to as the "napalm girl"), taken nearly 40 years ago on June 8th in 1972 by press photographer Nick Ut, won a Pulitzer Prize at the time and became one of the most important images from the Vietnam War era.
Although Nixon doubted the veracity of the images, video taken
just before and after that photograph seem to support the fact that the event did, in fact, happen.
Kim Phuc has since created a foundation
(note, link for future reference, it seems to have exceeded its bandwidth at the moment) to provide medical and psychological support to the victims of war.
Photographer Nick Ut now lives in L.A. and works for the Associated Press.
