"Forgiveness made me free from hatred. I still have many scars on my body and severe pain most days but my heart is cleansed. Napalm is very powerful, but faith, forgiveness, and love are much more powerful. We would not have war at all if everyone could learn how to live with true love, hope, and forgiveness. If that little girl in the picture can do it, ask yourself: Can you?”

— Kim Phúc (The girl in the iconic photo from the Vietnam war who was severely burned by napalm. She was rescued by the photographer. She nearly died and spent 14 months in a Saigon hospital, enduring 17 surgical procedures. She now lives in Canada)
