One of the most iconic images of the Vietnam War turns 40 and, finally, the terrified girl pictured has found peace. Kim Phuc was 9 years old on June 8, 1972, running naked from her napalm-blasted village. Huynh Cong "Nick" Ut didn't just photograph her -- he used his American press badge to get her medical treatment, and she was hospitalized for 13 months.
After a lifetime of "anger and bitterness" at her unwanted fame, Phuc was finally able to tell her side of the story through personal essays. She became a U.N. Goodwill Ambassador and started the Kim Foundation International to help other young victims of war. "I can accept the picture as a powerful gift," she said.
