Afghan Girl 
And of course the afghan girl, picture shot by National Geographic photographer
Steve McCurry. Sharbat Gula was one of the students in an informal school within
the refugee camp; McCurry, rarely given the opportunity to photograph Afghan
women, seized the opportunity and captured her image. She was approximately 12
years old at the time. She made it on the cover of National Geographic next
year, and her identity was discovered in 1992.

Burning Monk - The Self-Immolation 
June 11, 1963, Thich Quang Duc, a Buddhist monk from Vietnam, burned himself to
death at a busy intersection in downtown Saigon to bring attention to the
repressive policies of the Catholic Diem regime that controlled the South
Vietnamese government at the time. Buddhist monks asked the regime to lift its
ban on flying the traditional Buddhist flag, to grant Buddhism the same rights
as Catholicism, to stop detaining Buddhists and to give Buddhist monks and nuns
the right to practice and spread their religion.
While burning Thich Quang Duc never moved a muscle.
