    Get out! Run! We must leave this place! They are going to destroy this whole place! Go, children, run first! Go now!

    These were the final shouts nine year-old Kim Phuc heard before her world dissolved into flames—before napalm bombs fell from the sky, burning away her clothing and searing deep into her skin. It’s a moment forever captured, an iconic image that has come to define the horror and violence of the Vietnam War. Kim was left for dead in a morgue; no one expected her to survive the attack. Napalm meant fire, and fire meant death.

    Against all odds, Kim lived—but her journey toward healing was only beginning. Kim Phuc is a UNESCO Goodwill ambassador who travels to hundreds of events every year around the world. She has received numerous awards and recognitions for her commitment to global peace and reconciliation. This includes five honorary doctorates —including doctorates of law from York University, Queens University, and University of Lethbridge—for her work in supporting child victims of war around the world. She helped launch the Restoring Heroes Foundation, an organization that serves military and first-responders who have suffered traumatic scars, burns, or amputations by providing them access to state-of-the-art medical treatment. Kim and her husband have two grown sons and live in the Toronto area."
