Story to help:

I would like to give you few good informations about my life for the contest that you are participating in, when I escaped from Czechoslovakia, it was 4 years before Berlin wall came down and in 1989 when Ronald Reagan requested 'Mr. Gorbachev, please tear down this wall'!

After one and half year my parents had to go to court to listen that his son was sentenced to one year in hard prison term, reason - choosing life abroad in America. I did not see my family for whole 10 years, I visited my home - birth country, only when I got my citizenship in 1994. After returning, I found out that the country I remember from 1985, it is not the same...People dealing drugs had Camaro's and Firebirds parked at front of the pubs - places mainly empty but used to loundry money from drug sales. Everywhere people had cell phones which was huge shock for me since in US we had only pagers that time...etc., just a little help to create the right cover for the book.Thank you for participating.
