It’s Been 50 Years. I Am Not Napalm Girl Anymore.

From a New York Times guest essay by Kim Phuc Phan Thi headlined “It’s Been 50 Years. I Am Not Napalm Girl Anymore”:

I grew up in the small village of Trang Bang in South Vietnam. My mother said I laughed a lot as a young girl. We led a simple life with an abundance of food, since my family had a farm and my mom ran the best restaurant in town. I remember loving school and playing with my cousins and the other children in our village, jumping rope, running and chasing one another joyfully.
