Must watch interview with the "napalm girl" from the 1972 Pulitzer-winning photo

Remember the Napalm Girl from the Vietnamese War?

Per Wikipedia:

In this Vietnamese name, the family name is Phan. According to Vietnamese custom, this person should properly be referred to by the given name Kim Phúc.
Phan Thị Kim Phúc OOnt, born April 6, 1963), referred to informally as the Napalm girl, is a South Vietnamese-born Canadian woman best known as the nine-year-old child depicted in the Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph taken at Trảng Bàng during the Vietnam War on June 8, 1972. The well-known photo, by AP photographer Nick Ut, shows her at nine years of age running naked on a road after being severely burned on her back by a South Vietnamese napalm attack.

Here's her wiki. More here, and here's the photographer remembering that day: My picture led to end of the Vietnam war: ‘Napalm Girl' photographer Nick Ut tells TNM.
