Vietnam 'napalm girl' immortalized in iconic 1972 photo starts free course of laser treatment to put an end to her chronic pain

The famous photo, called “Napalm Girl,” changed the history of Vietnam War. The little girl who got serious burn by napalm(燒夷彈) was called Phan Thị Kim Phúc.

In the photograph that made Kim Phuc a living symbol of the Vietnam War, her burns aren't visible - only her agony as she runs wailing toward the camera, her arms flung away from her body, naked because she has ripped off her burning clothes.

 

More than 40 years later she can hide the scars beneath long sleeves, but a single tear down her otherwise radiant face betrays the pain she has endured since that errant napalm strike in 1972.

Reunited with photographer, Nick Ut - the man who made her suffering the indelible image of the Vietnam War and helped turn the tide of public opinion in the United States - she has traveled to America.

Now she has a new chance to heal - a prospect she once thought possible only in a life after death.


      So many years I thought that I have no more scars, no more pain when I'm in heaven. But now - heaven on earth for me!' Phuc says upon her arrival in Miami to see a dermatologist who specializes in laser treatments for burn patients.

Late last month, Phuc, 52, began a series of laser treatments that her doctor, Jill Waibel of the Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute, says will smooth and soften the pale, thick scar tissue that ripples from her left hand up her arm, up her neck to her hairline and down almost all of her back.

Even more important to Phuc, Waibel says the treatments also will relieve the deep aches and pains that plague her to this day.


      With Phuc are her husband, Bui Huy Toan, and another man who has been part of her life since she was 9 years old: Los Angeles-based Associated Press photojournalist Nick Ut.

'He's the beginning and the end,' Phuc says of the man she calls 'Uncle Ut.''

'He took my picture and now he'll be here with me with this new journey, new chapter.'

It was Ut, now 65, who captured Phuc's agony on June 8, 1972, after the South Vietnamese military accidentally dropped napalm on civilians in Phuc's village, Trang Bang, outside Saigon.

Ut remembers the girl screaming in Vietnamese, 'Too hot! Too hot!'

He put her in the AP van where she crouched on the floor, her burnt skin raw and peeling off her body as she sobbed, 'I think I'm dying, too hot, too hot, I'm dying.'

He took her to a hospital. Only then did he return to the Saigon bureau to file his photographs, including the one of Phuc on fire that would win the Pulitzer Prize.

Phuc suffered serious burns over a third of her body; at that time, most people who sustained such injuries over 10 percent of their bodies died, Waibel says.

Napalm sticks like a jelly, so there was no way for victims like Phuc to outrun the heat, as they could in a regular fire. '

'The fire was stuck on her for a very long time,' Waibel says, and destroyed her skin down through the layer of collagen, leaving her with scars almost four times as thick as normal skin.

While she spent years doing painful exercises to preserve her range of motion, her left arm still doesn't extend as far as her right arm, and her desire to learn how to play the piano has been thwarted by stiffness in her left hand. 

Tasks as simple as carrying her purse on her left side are too difficult.

 

Phuc says her Christian faith brought her physical and emotional peace "in the midst of hatred, bitterness, pain, loss, hopelessness,' when the pain seemed insurmountable.

'No operation, no medication, no doctor can help to heal my heart. The only one is a miracle, (that) God love me,' she says. 'I just wish one day I am free from pain.'

 

At the first treatment in Waibel's office, a scented candle lends a comforting air to the procedure room, and Phuc's husband holds her hand in prayer.

Phuc tells Waibel her pain is '10 out of 10' - the worst of the worst.

      The type of lasers being used on Phuc's scars originally were developed to smooth out wrinkles around the eyes, Waibel says. 

The lasers heat skin to the boiling point to vaporize scar tissue. 

Once sedatives have been administered and numbing cream spread thickly over Phuc's skin, Waibel dons safety glasses and aims the laser. 

Again and again, a red square appears on Phuc's skin, the laser fires with a beep and a nurse aims a vacuum-like hose at the area to catch the vapor.

The procedure creates microscopic holes in the skin, which allows topical, collagen-building medicines to be absorbed deep through the layers of tissue.

Waibel expects Phuc to need up to seven treatments over the next eight or nine months.

Wrapped in blankets, drowsy from painkillers, her scarred skin a little red from the procedure, Phuc made a little fist pump. 

Compared to the other surgeries and skin grafts when she was younger, the lasers were easier to take.

'This was so light, just so easy,' she says.

A couple weeks later, home in Canada, Phuc says her scars have reddened and feel tight and itchy as they heal - but she's eager to continue the treatments.

'Maybe it takes a year,' she says. 'But I am really excited - and thankful.'

海洋垃圾帶

 

The Great Pacific garbage patch 海洋垃圾帶
不知道大家有沒有看過吳明益的小說"複眼人"
裡面就是有關海洋垃圾帶的奇幻小說

key word : gyre /plastic concentration /debris /water column

also described as the Pacific trash vortex, is a gyre of marine debris particles in the central North Pacific Ocean located roughly between 135°W to 155°W and 35°N and 42°N.[1] The patch extends over an indeterminate area, with estimates ranging very widely depending on the degree of plastic concentration used to define the affected area.
The patch is characterized by exceptionally high relative concentrations of pelagic plastics, chemical sludge and other debris that have been trapped by the currents of the North Pacific Gyre. Despite its large area, it is of very low density (4 particles per cubic meter), therefore not visible from satellite photography, nor even necessarily to casual boaters or divers in the area. It consists primarily of a small increase in suspended, often microscopic particles in the upper water column.

我的教學理念

   My Teaching Philosophy

I. The reason why I choose Teaching as my career為什麼我要當老師?高中時期一個心酸的小故事

Now a high school teacher, I still remember my freshman year in senior high with a shudder; it was the first year I joked about as the “Year of Sleepless Nights.” It wasn’t that I had suffered sleeping disorder. As a matter of fact, I had done what most students do: sacrifice my precious sleeping hours for the sake of academic success. I soon found myself mired in work, for endless tests and the great deal of schoolwork almost wore me out. Despite the sleep-deprived state I constantly lived in, people around me hardly knew the price I paid for scholarly success.

 One day when I felt entirely defeated by the pressure I put on myself, I looked extremely depressed at school all day long. Seemingly the only one noticing the truth and trying to help me, my English teacher frowned at me with concern and then had an inspiring talk to me. “Academic success,” she talked to me, “means nothing if your heart isn’t into earning it.” It seemed that her words got certain magic power of healing. Until now, her warm smile has still been carved on my mind. Though I seldom talked of the history, I still thank to the morning’s conversion, for it is the turning point of my life that teaches me the true meaning of learning. Hence, when thinking over my future, I will think of my English teacher in senior high. That is the reason why I am fairly determined to choose “teaching” as my lifelong career.


II. My enthusiasm about English對英文的無盡熱愛

Meanwhile, English always has an extraordinary appeal to me. In the particular reverie that comes with reading the language, I allowed my mind to wander in the world of foreign culture. As I see it, English is unquestionably the best way for senior high students to embrace the world and expanded their horizon of knowledge. As a literature major, I am confident that I have the ability to teach my students how to think critically. That is to say, I embrace teaching English as the opportunity to build up their philosophy. I would like to share with my students not only the distinctive perspectives from which I see the world but also the wisdom that I collect through experience.  



III. My teaching Style教學風格

My teaching mainly aims at broadening students’ knowledge of language, kindling their enthusiasm about English, and creating the energetic atmosphere of learning. With an attempt to carry out these crucial goals, my teaching has a tendency to highlight not only my own proficiency in English but also the dynamic instructional methods, which makes me capable of leading students to overcome the obstacles of learning the foreign culture and language. As a result, I will first construct a substantial database of linguistic knowledge for students when teaching them vocabulary and grammatical structure. Next, after they have the primary knowledge of language, I will further to emphasize the cultural meaning of the text and how to appreciate the author’s writing style.

I believe learning language is a continual process of cognition. To make the process work smoothly, it is necessary for students to memorize detailed information, such as vocabulary and some phrasal expressions. Therefore, I will design a quiz or a small game to review what I have taught and to warm up their thinking in the initiative part of every class. Furthermore, I will ask students to pin down what I have said during the class. Since I don’t like the traditional way of teaching vocabulary, I always will make the lexicons easier to memorize when teaching my students new words. My tip is to tell students the roots of words, because making the spelling more systematic is just the way in which I learned English. 

Last but not the least, each person gets to have their own “Vocabulary Bank Notebook.” I will assess their notebook at the end of the semester. I hope all my students develop a habit of writing down new words they have just learned in their word banks of personal styles.


IV. My dream to become a successful English teacher在教學的偉大航道上

In addition to the knowledge of language, I am sure that my open-minded, creative, and humorous characteristics will also lead the class into a delightful world of learning English. Immersing in the Western culture both enables me to develop a strong interest to get in touch with new things and renders me the capability of appreciating the beauty of the world. Thus, I will appreciate own my students, digging out their distinctive beauty. Meanwhile, I hold a conviction that great teachers need to be creative so as to improve the teaching methodology. With creativity, I always strive to make my own teaching more interesting and innovative. Though I may be not experienced enough, my belief to become a creative teacher always urges me to sharpen my instructional skills. At last, according to my friends, I am definitely not a boring person. I believe my humorous personality also makes me ready to be an easy-going and flexible teacher. With these personality traits, I will try my best to accomplish my dream of teaching English.
