Kimberly Dozier, a CNN and Daily Beast contributor and the 2014-15 General Omar N. Bradley Chair in Strategic Leadership, presented the lecture, “How to Survive a Car Bomb and Anything Else: Turning Healing Anger Into Portable Wisdom,” Oct. 6 at Penn State’s Dickinson School of Law.
Watch Dozier's lecture. (Presentation starts at 32:25.)
Dozier drew on her experience covering the war in Iraq for CBS News from 2003 until May 29, 2006, when she was critically wounded in a car bombing that killed the U.S. Army officer that her team was filming, Capt. James Alex Funkhouser, his Iraqi translator "Sam," and Dozier's CBS colleagues, cameraman Paul Douglas and soundman James Brolan. She recounted the attack in Iraq, her injuries and the long road to recovery, in her memoir, Breathing the Fire: Fighting to Survive and Get Back to the Fight.
