Victim of the Day

Have been neglecting this section of the blog, I initally meant to run it everyday. Must get back to it immediately.

I AM LOOKING FOR NAMES AND STORIES OF LEBANESE CIVILIAN VICTIMS FOR THIS SECTION - if you have such information please send it to me!

***************

David Lalchuck, 52, of Kibbutz Sa'ar, north of Nahariya, Israel.

Dave immigrated to Israel from Boston about 20 years ago. He married a girl from Nahariya and the couple had 2 daughters. He had a degree in economics and loved agriculture. The family joined the kibbutz about 15 years ago. Since fighting began, he stayed alone in the kibbutz while his wife and daughters fled south. "Everyone left the kibbutz including my family, I'm staying to guard the place. Our fortress" he said yesterday to a neighbour. Dave was directly hit while riding his bicycle down a kibbutz path. A friend speculated he was out during a siren alarm trying to get a dog he recently adopted to a safe place. He was an avid animal lover, and he was always called whenever an abandoned animal was found in the kibbutz. His beloved dog Doc was found with him. The dog refused to leave the side of his owner's body.

Hi!
I'm 14 years old, I´m jewish and I live in Brazil.
I´ve read an article at the newspaper about your blog and about other Israelis and Lebanese’s blogs. I found very interesting the idea of this one, because we can know about both sides. If people tried to communicate and see that before being Jews, Muslims, Catholics or others, we all are humans, the world would be really better.

Very tragic story, but not even close to all the horror and massacres done in Lebanon. In fact one blog couldn't even fit all stories and names of Lebanese civilain victims need more. One thousand dead.... civilians ...
