Kim Phuc, the "Napalm(-ed) Girl" forgives Capt who coordinated It, IN Person...on Veteran's Day; Will World forgive NWO Empire?

“We cannot change history, but with love we can heal the future.” - Phan Thi Kim Phuc (aka, the "Napalm Girl")

The story of the famous naked girl running down the road in Vietnam. If there was one photograph that captured the horrific nature of the Vietnam War, it was that of a nine-year old girl running naked down the road, screaming in agony from napalm burns that had eaten into her flesh. The photographer who took that picture of young Kim Phuc was awarded a Pulitzer Prize. But ironically, the picture that moved millions to tears, ultimately made Kim Phuc a victim all over again. This is her story. 1997 documentary.

It takes unbelievable amount of courage, and human sympathy, to forgive and in fact implore the future generation to strive for peace, love and grant forgiveness to those who have done you harm. But nevertheless, like the innocent Japanese civilians/victims of Hiroshima & Nagasaki, here she is doing just that; what an unbelievably beautiful soul!

The Atlantic | August 8, 2014: The War Photo No One Would Publish

As with this earlier photo which was indeed published and became the most famous image of an earlier American imperial exercise in genocide, one picture screams a thousand words concerning the insanity of war. I met the subject of this latter searing image many years ago. The State and its craven regime media fear Kim Phuc as a living witness testifying to the horrific reality of war. They hate for her enduring courage and dedication towards stopping what happened to her from ever happening to other children. Therefore they will do everything in their diabolic power to suppress similar images which slice through the execrable banalities and manufactured lies of war.

UPDATE: An alert LRC reader forwarded me this poignant account of Kim Phuc sharing her message of peace and reconciliation in the face of ever increasing war: “We cannot change history, but with love we can heal the future.”

‘The Girl in the Picture’: Survivor of war teaches peace

“We cannot change history, but with love we can heal the future.”

Holding an autographed poster, Jesuit Father Tan Pham, right, parochial vicar at Transfiguration Church, Marietta, poses with Kim Phuc Phan Thi. “I grew up five kilometers (3 miles) from her village (Trang Bang). I’ve waited 41 years to meet her,” said Father Pham. The bottom of the poster bears Phuc’s words – “We cannot change history, but with love we can heal the future.” Photo By Michael Alexander

ATLANTA— An entire generation instantly recognizes the image of an unclothed Vietnamese girl running toward the camera in terror after a bombing at her village.

Taken by Associated Press photographer Nick Ut in June 1972, the black and white photograph became one of the most iconic pictures from the Vietnam War.

Napalm bombing survivor Kim Phuc Phan Thi, the girl from the picture, visited Marist School in Atlanta on Oct. 22. Phuc asked students there to help spread a message of peace and forgiveness.

Every picture tells a story - but none like this one. A photograph of a young girl running naked down a road, her skin on fire from napalm, changed the way the world looked at the Vietnam War. The picture was transmitted around the world and eventually earned a Pulitzer Prize for the photographer, Nick Ut. The girl in the picture is Kim Phuc. Today Kim Phuc tells her story of recovery, forgiveness and courage inspiring audiences around the globe.

When Forgiveness Hurts - Kim Phuc.mp4

Kim Phuc shares her remarkable journey and message of forgiveness with The Way Community Church on January 20, 2012.

Ya think the revenge SOP-prone Mid Easterners and Muslims at large, would too 'forgive,' for what the NWO hijacked Amerikan Military Industrial Complex imperial warmachine has done to them, not just in their world, but to rest of the world, especially in the last 14yrs, let alone, since Manifest Destiny"??

Only time will tell. But, observing history: not optimistic. Not waitin' to find out...

Still, what Kim Phuc implores, really IS the only way to 'move forward,' if there is such a thing: “We cannot change history, but with love we can heal the future.”

People today are so sensitive they should be deemed clinically insane

Disgusting

All these horrors and war crimes. How dare America condemn or criticize other countries for using chemical warfare!

60,000+ of our people died too. For nothing.

I don't get how military folks can still join up seeing how many veterans of this 40+-year-ago war are homeless, mentally-ill, dying untreated by a disgusting VA system and the sick government that runs it.

God bless the Napalm Girl.

When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign: that the dunces are all in confederacy against him. ~J. Swift

indeed.

truly, the most frightening human invention is social engineering: otherwise, people would learn from history; yet, are still brainwashed to worship the state, the state-actors, and generations of innocents willfully joining its ranks...perhaps rationalizing to themselves: 'that won't happen to my generation.'

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

Forgiveness is stupid

Forgiveness is not a virtue, it is taught to people so that they will let horrors and the men that commit them continue doing them. Forgiveness is a vice - based on an insipid goal of the cult leaders of all religions.

The Captain should not be forgiven, he should have been in prison or executed, I prefer executed. All these monsters should be killed, preferably before they have a chance to reproduce.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

Forgiveness is a two-party transaction

When one forgives, one has committed to not take on acts of vengeance for the perceived transgression. It is a show of good will to wipe the slate of grievances clean to start anew or, at least, to unburden future generations from carrying undeserved debt. If only one party forgives, then the other party reserves the right to attack and a return to calm is impossible as the forgiving party must continue sink resources into defending against a possible attack. When both sides forgive, a return to normalcy allows a return to previous productive partnerships or at least allows the possibility of future mutually beneficial interactions.

The case in point is America and Vietnam. As Ron Paul pointed out many times during his last two campaigns, more was done in peacetime then could ever be done in war. And what is war if not usually an act aggression of one party in retaliation for some past wrong.

To the point, the summation product of all two-party transactions of forgiveness is peace. (Given the latest bouts of aggression by key first world countries, it seems a bit of destruction can quickly metastasize.)

As an aside, there seems to be more behind the story of the Captain in the first video. Even so, foreign aid given as weapons of destruction discriminates against no innocents.

Exactly. That is why forgiveness is evil.

"When one forgives, one has committed to not take on acts of vengeance for the perceived transgression" -- Exactly, letting them get away with it. When a child isn't corrected after bad behavior what happens? Yup, they think they can do that behavior. This is how the churches convince the sheeple to follow the banksters and the fascists, forgive them every time they take another chunk.

"It is a show of good will to wipe the slate of grievances clean to start anew or, at least, to unburden future generations from carrying undeserved debt." -- Again, that just encourages the same behavior, as in Afghanistan, Iraq, Lybia, etc... This is how the military industrial complex uses religion and patriotism to excuse their murderous ways. It also helps when the people being murdered worship a different magic sky deity.

"And what is war if not usually an act aggression of one party in retaliation for some past wrong." -- Wrong! There was no act of aggression that started Vietnam. It was all a sham. So, yes, more is accomplished by peace. What was our reason for going in Iraq? It certainly wasn't an act of aggression. No, war is always a racket. Shall we "forgive" George Bush and Donald Rumsfeld? I say Hell NO. The people should lynch the bastards and leave them swinging on a tree.

"To the point, the summation product of all two-party transactions of forgiveness is peace." -- Wrong again. Peace was only accomplished when we stopped killing. It had nothing to do with "forgiveness". You are deluded in your thinking.

"As an aside, there seems to be more behind the story of the Captain in the first video" -- I don't care. He is an evil man.

For someone who faults the God of creation,

you sure seem to have a good understanding of justice.

Christians should not be warmongers! http://www.lewrockwell.com/vance/vance87.html

Huh?

I don't "fault" the god of creation. They don't exist.

But thanks, I do have a good understanding of justice. That is because it is based on many thousands of years of experience.

To err is human

To learn--by trial and error.

If we are condemned in our first trial, what hope is there for anyone?

What?

I have no idea what that means.

Kindness is ment to lead to repentence

and in the end, forgivers win: evidence?

Jesus said: Father, forgive them for they don't know what they do.

A centurion at his crucifixion testified later:
(After seeing how He died, committing His Spirit to God, His Father)
"Surely this was God's son."

Jesus rose!

I hope your wife doesn't feel

I hope your wife doesn't feel the same way.

Christians should not be warmongers! http://www.lewrockwell.com/vance/vance87.html

She absolutely does

Not sure what you are insinuating. I can't think of anything I would need to ask forgiveness for. We agree that there are consequences to actions, no forgiveness. If she ever cheated on me she would leave with no financial support - we discussed that early on. I feel sorry for your husband if he has to forgive you every time you cheat on him.

Other than that, what is there to forgive? An occasional emotional outburst perhaps. But, that is an understood behavior, whether there is a cause or not. That is just a matter of cooling down and revisiting the moment. There have been some, let's say, bad financial decisions at times spending more than budget allowed at Whole Foods or someplace that I just let go. I suppose that could be considered forgiveness, but something as petty as that I don't think is in the realm of what we are talking about.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

You must be a perfect human being to never need forgiveness...

I guess I don't measure up, because I need forgiveness and understanding from my husband and children (not to mention friends and extended family) almost daily (and it's most certainly not because I commit adultery!).

Christians should not be warmongers! http://www.lewrockwell.com/vance/vance87.html

Not perfect

Not sure what you mean by "perfect". I have faults as anyone does. And, there is a huge difference between "understanding" and "forgiveness". Those are apples and oranges in comparison. I've made mistakes with my wife of course, done or said the wrong thing, but that is more of contrition and understanding and I correct the behavior.

I'm sorry you feel as though you need to be forgiven every day. That sounds like a horrible existence. Why don't you just do the right thing from the start? You sound like you are in pain.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

An incredible story and some

An incredible story and some nightmarish memories from the pictures back then.

indeed.

if pictures could change history...

though who can specifically quantify what effect such photos had in help ending the war (okay, so if we were only to accept the notion of disenchanted vox populi aiding the end to Vietnam, and not corporatist mil. ind. complex 'ending' it on its own accord, ie: Nixon 'coup' as Roger Stone now emphatically asserts)...but no denying its wholly gut-punch effect.

still, I do truly wonder though, with a graphic media-desensitized post-internet selfie generation who almost 'get-off' on watching Ogrish.com reality-'snuff,' if such photos would have the same or similar impact, today, without the 'benefit' of having every able-bodied male's life literally being threatened with the prospects of wartime draft, and only 3 MSM channels+PBS broadcasting nightly the horrors of Vietnam...

indeed, indeed;

always interesting the nature of human emotions and psyche that the most zen of it: to forgive others, one must forgive oneself, first.

it was an odd concept that I didn't quite 'get' viscerally, in my youth. but indeed: letting go, even though you yourself are the victim, in order to forgive your enemy, you must forgive yourself first, otherwise, you actually 'become' them, and it will consume you, unless you 'let go.'

cheesy, but it's the ye ol Anakin Skywalker dealio: hate consumes... then you become Darth Vader... with SUPER Powers!!

but... but... but... SUPER Powers!!

awwwhhh... alrightie... must we really make the choice to give that up?? who designed this friggin' universe & all its stupid rules...along with plausible, fictitiously postulate extrapolations, gosh dang it!

but oh so unfair...as I do enjoy me some righteous satisfaction... but do know that it only serves the ego: knowing both 'zen' of it, and still conscious satiable appetite for righteousness-dealing, is the worst paradox of all. LOL...er.. .o/
