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.

"Water boils at two hundred and twelve degrees Fahrenheit . . . an average building fire, at its hottest, burns somewhere between twelve hundred and fifteen hundred degrees. But napalm? It burns at five thousand . . . Unfortunately, it came to my village that day." Some reading experiences leave m...

The photo on the cover of this book is actually a very famous picture, yet I knew very little about the Vietnam war prior to reading about this book. Although I love history and read about frequently, for some reason I haven't read much about the Vietnam war. This book was also very interesting b...

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. There is so much said about the war in Vietnam but not a lot about what happened after it was over: how the Vietnamese p...

This book is definitely not for the squeamish. War isn't pretty. What's incredible is the story of the Vietnam war told from a child's perspective. A very interesting read!

A picture says a thousand words unless it’s this picture. Then it says so much. To Kim Phuc Phan Thi, the iconic “Napalm Girl” photograph screams “PAIN.” Taken shortly after a napalm bomb destroyed her home and village, Kim Phuc went running down the highway towards photographers and reporters cov...

It is one of the most iconic photographs in Life Magazine and now this book tells of the story of the author, who was at the time of the photograph 9 years old and told not only the horrific burns, but the treatments and healing=physically and emotionally. On June 8, 1972, 9 year old Kim Phuc Pha...

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...
