Kim Phuc was pictured in a world-famous and iconic photograph from the Vietnam war, running naked from an airborne attack, horribly burned with napalm, in June of 1972. Since then, Kim has found peace, and a message she can offer, borne of her suffering. She runs The Kim Foundation International, and she acts as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNESCO. She has transformed into a viable, visible symbol of peace and hope. Hers is an important story of resilience, courage, and forgiveness. by luella

Descriptions range from vaporous, cloud-like beings to “air whales” & “air krakens,” to translucent, floating jellyfish that dip in and out of clouds with no visible means of propulsion. There are also airborne, man-eating super-amoebas, and even instances of one-eyed, flipper-bearing, headless dragons (!).
