Learning To Forgive
Kim Phuc
Monday, February 5, 2007 - 8:00pm
On June 8, 1972, Kim Phuc’s village of Trang Bang was napalmed. While running for safety with other children, Phuc was severely burned. Captured on film by the Pulitzer Prize-winning AP photographer Huyng Cong Nick Ut, the photo became a symbol of civilian suffering in the Vietnam War. Phuc suffered many years of painful burn therapy, but she always longed to reach out and help other children who were victimized by war. Her incredible strength and spirit are evident when she speaks about forgiveness and helping children.

Kim Phuc will also be participating in The Forum@MC, a series of free panel discussions of arts-related issues. For more information, click here.
