Phan Thi Kim Phuc, right, hugs Associated Press staff photographer Nick Ut during a reunion in Buena Park, Calif., Saturday, June 2, 2012. It only took a second for Associated Press photographer Nick Ut to snap the iconic black-and-white image of her after a napalm attack in 1972. It communicated the horrors of the Vietnam War in a way words could never describe, helping to end one of America's darkest eras. But beneath the photo lies a lesser-known story. It's the tale of a dying child brought together by chance with a young photographer. A moment captured in the chaos of war that would serve as both her savior and her curse on a journey to understand life's plan for her. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong) less
