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.”
