Middle and Upper School students had the unique opportunity to hear Kim Phuc, "the girl in the picture," tell her story of struggle and triumph from her life experience during the Vietnam War. As the teacher of the Literature of War and Conflict class, I find it of the utmost importance for my students to meet face-to-face with people who have gone through struggles, be it soldiers from the front lines or families from the home front. These opportunities allow students to connect our readings with real people, creating a deeper sense of empathy and understanding for the people in our textbooks.
