TWO GIRLS IN DISTRESS--35 YEARS APART

" On June 8, 1972, children and their families fled the village of Trang Bang down Route-1, their bodies seared by napalm. The young girl screaming, in particular, was etched onto the world's mind by the photograph of Huynh Cong 'Nick' Ut, an AP photographer." The girl was Phan Thi Kim Phuc.
