Not forgotten

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

Ad­junct pro­fes­sor Karen L. Bune, who teaches vic­ti­mol­ogy at Mary­mount Univer­sity, in­spired her class this hol­i­day sea­son to rec­og­nize a vic­tim of the Septem­ber 11 at­tack at the Pen­tagon.

Louise Kurtz is lucky to have sur­vived, though with se­vere burns on 70 per­cent of her body. She has re­quired re­peated surgery dur­ing what has been a dif­fi­cult re­cov­ery process.

“The grad­u­ate class of foren­sic psy­chol­ogy stu­dents de­cided to pur­chase — and they all chipped in money — an in­spi­ra­tional pic­ture that had a say­ing on it about the mean­ing of hope. They had the pic­ture pro­fes­sion­ally mat­ted and framed and sent it to Ms. Kurtz,” the pro­fes­sor tells Inside the Belt­way.

“The Mary­mount class that stud­ied vic­tim is­sues wanted Ms. Kurtz to know that she is not forgotten, that she is an in­spi­ra­tion and that she is re­mem­bered this hol­i­day sea­son and al­ways.”
