Most people who lived during the time of Vietnam War remember a stunning photo of a little girl running naked following the Napalm bombing of her village.

Others born later probably have seen the photo in a history book telling the story of the war.

That little girl, Kim Phuc, survived, and today is a happy grandmother.
