What happened to the courage born of innocence and curiosity; what brought it to a sudden halt? Although Sonia knew her family was different, the springtime of the open fields in early childhood could run their hope throughout her. And when at home,it only took one stoke of brush to paint over the imperfections in her family. That image being used to feed the gauze of fairy tales of her imaginings, little Sonia sustained a hope that miraculously endured one burst of violence after another. It took her witness of a horror beyond what her young mind could conceive to bring down the house built of her dreams. No space untouched to run for safety, she was snapped up into a vacuum.
