In this March 29, 2012 photo, Associated Press photographer Huynh Cong "Nick" Ut visits Kim Phuc's house near the place he took his famous Pulitzer Prize winning photograph of her as a terrified 9-year-old in Trang Bang, Tay Ninh province, Vietnam. The iconic black-and-white image of the aftermath of a napalm attack communicated the horrors of the Vietnam War in a way words could never describe and contributed to its end. But behind the camera, it also brought the wounded girl together with the young photographer, and it came to define her life both as a curse and ultimately as a savior. (AP Photo/Na Son Nguyen)
