Kim Phuc: Sept. 23/16

.

You likely have seen Kim Phuc in the 1972 photo of the aftermath of her village being napalmed, found on her wikipedia page.

My Camp Gitchigomee friend, Marie, joined her on stage with some of her fellow students from Westmount School. I did get to speak with Kim Phuc afterwards as well. I told her that my mother had met her at a Rotary Conference in San Francisco (I think) around 2000. With a twinkle in her eye, she asked me to send her her love.
