The ‘Napalm Girl’, 40 years later
Joe McNally, who was commissioned by LIFE magazine to find and photograph subjects of Pulitzer Prize winning photos, shot Kim Phuc – the girl running from an airborne attack in this devastatingly iconic shot during the Vietnam War.
The original photo was taken by AP photographer Nick Ut, and turned Kim into a propaganda tool for the anti-war movement.  Joe had the privilege of meeting and photographing Kim, who had recently given birth to her newborn son. Joe knew to treat the situation with care, since showcasing her scars from the napalm burn was significant.
“For me, doing this assignment reconfirmed so many things I’ve always believed about photography,” says Joe in his blog post “On a Road, 40 Years Ago“. “That photo made on that horrible day was made in less than a second. Yet a lifetime spun on its power. With so many photographs being taken everywhere, easily, and thoughtlessly, it’s easy to forget how powerful they can be, and occasionally are.” (via)

This made me burst into tears.

It would do to remind ourselves every once in a while that real people suffer the consequence of war, not just abstract concepts in a far away land.

I need to hug everything right now :[

Best known for my Avatar Makeup Tutorial, or the Chola Makeup Tutorial on YouTube, which landed me a spot on Lopez Tonight, giving Sandra Bullock a Chola Makeover!

Hi Guys! Gloria Shuri Nava here! I'm 24, make youtube videos and do just a tad bit of acting on the side! I'm also in a long distance relationship which I find is important to say because I know it's always nice to know there are other people out there who are on the same boat as me!

As of lately I like to write, and attempt to come up with new material to make you laugh! Have a great day! <3
