The times we are living are difficult. It feels so strange to be in quarantine at home for weeks and weeks. So many people have died with this virus, it is so sad. This piece has been growing day by day, and it represents the terrible virus, but as it developed, I put a sun at the top, which means that we are going to make it , hopefully our life is going to be better!
