Fire Road: The Napalm Girl's Journey Through the Horrors of War to Faith, Forgiveness, and Peace Read Online Free - Get out! Run! We must leave this place! They are going to destroy this whole place! Go, children, run first! Go now!
These were the final shouts nine year-old Kim Phuc heard before her world dissolved into flames--before napalm bombs fell from the sky, burning away her clothing and searing deep into her skin. It's a moment forever captured, an iconic image that has come to define the horror and violence of the Vietnam War. Kim was left for dead in a morgue; no one expected her to survive the attack. Napalm meant fire, and fire meant death.
Against all odds, Kim lived--but her journey toward healing was only beginning. When the napalm bombs dropped, everything Kim knew and relied on exploded along with them: her home, her country's freedom, her childhood innocence and happiness. The coming years would be marked by excruciating treatments for her burns and unrelenting physical pain throughout her body, which were constant reminders of that terrible day. Kim survived the pain of her body ablaze, but how could she possibly survive the pain of her devastated soul?
Fire Road is the true story of how she found the answer in a God who suffered Himself; a Savior who truly understood and cared about the depths of her pain. Fire Road is a story of horror and hope, a harrowing tale of a life changed in an instant--and the power and resilience that can only be found in the power of God's mercy and love.

The cover of this book has such a famous picture on it and yet I knew very little about it. I had known the general historic background but never heard the author speak before.

Keith and I just returned from Vietnam and Cambodia. Fire Road and Kim Phuc Phan Thi were on my mind the entire trip.
The Anti-American War (the Vietnamese name for the Vietnam War) is ever present there and in the scars of Kim Phuc. Yet, the same spirit that Kim Phuc demonstrates in Fire Road wa...
