Doron Almog was awarded the ISRAEL PRIZE the highest civilian honour bestowed upon citizens of Israel.
The story of his life is awe inspiring: an Israeli patriot, special forces soldier, who suffered tragedies of such great proportions! but brought so much hope for disabled people of all races in Israel.
if you have a chance to watch the video, please do so :
Five members of the Almog family from Haifa: Ze'ev Almog, 71, his wife Ruth, 70, their son Moshe, 43, and grandsons Tomer Almog, 9, and Assaf Staier, 11 were killed in the suicide bombing of Maxim restaurant in Haifa on October 4, 2003, while Oren Almog, 10, was grievously injured and blinded.
His brother died fighting the syrians in Golan Heights and his son was given the name of his brother ERAN, with great hopes of courage and patriotism.
But little Eran at the age of 8 months was diagnosed with Autism with severe mental retardation.
What Doron Almog did for the Israeli society and for people like his son, regardless of the race and religion, is amazing. Please watch the youtube video
