She is indeed exceptional. She and her husband and two kids live about 20 miles from my sons. She became a Canadian citizen in 1996.

What is sad is that many people will use this opportunity to bash God and Christianity. There are certain people on here that do so every chance they get. Here is a miracle from God- and those from the other side have to disparage this.

Me too. When I read the thread title I knew immediately who the girl was.

For those of us who remember the Vietnam war years.....that image is burned into our brains.

No, God can't be bashed, but people who whine about persecution when they are the persecutors are fair game.

What is there to criticize about a girl from an iconic photograph becoming a Christian? I fought in that war. There were horrible atrocities committed by both sides. The irony is that despite the evil of the war itself and how people treated one another we are able to see God able to bring peace at heart out of all the tragedy.

It's not that she became a Christian, it's from becoming Christian she found the peace of forgiveness as it teaches. That is when she started to feel peace. The Lord works in mysterious ways. It healed her spiritually.
