Do you remember world famous this picture?
A 9-year-old Vietnamese girl is crying, running naked and terrified down the road...
This was Nick Ut's picture of nine-year-old Phan Thi Phuc - a young girl, running naked and terrified down the road after a napalm attack - which became one of the iconic images of the entire conflict.
This picture is shows the horror of war in a realistic way.
I want people to know just how awful war is.
It was a terrible sight.

"War is Hell"
Nearly 60,000 US soldiers died in Vietnam, with more than 300,000 injured. For the Vietnamese, though, the figures were far higher, with estimates of more than half a million killed and many millions wounded.
All wars are a crime against humanity.
All war represented raw head and bloody bones.
War is beyond all words horrible.
In particular, the exhibits of wartime photography and propaganda all attest to the hideous suffering caused by the war.
I want peace.
I am utterly abhorrent to war in the world.
I urge an end to the war in the world.

- World Peace Initiative
The World Peace Initiative (WPI) was a campaign aimed to model the ability of humanity to live together in peace. This campaign served to create awareness, and inspire us to pay attention to the lives around us. It proved just how different the opinions and perspectives of our neighbors can be to our own, and how in order for us to make progress we need to respect each other while finding a common ground to build upon.
