From The Wall "When my American family goes to visit my Czech family in the colorful city of Prague , it is hard to convince them it was ever a dark place full of fear, suspicion, and lies. I find it difficult to explain my childhood; it's hard to put it into words, and since I have always drawn everything, I have tried to draw my life-- before America --for them." --P.S.
