I don't normally take part in these things since I kinda just do my own thing when it comes to art, but I was feeling inspired. 

This whole Corona Virus situation has shaken the world. In the space of a few months it has affected so many lives. I've been lucky enough that no one I know has been ill, but many of my friends and family have medical conditions that put them in the high risk category when it comes to the virus and I am terrified of them getting it. It has been an emotional time for everyone and yet there are people still stupid enough to be arguing and fighting against moves such as quarantines and stay-at-home orders with little or no regard for the safety of others. The quarantine is NOT just for your own sake, it's for the sake of the elderly, the immunity-compromised, the newborns, those who have pre-existing conditions, and humanity in general. 

You may think that it's fine to go out, you feel OK, it's a lovely sunny day, you've been indoors for weeks and it's driving you nuts. DON'T. Learn a new skill, watch something with your family, read a book. We are living in a time where there are thousands of things you can do from the comfort of your own home. YOU may feel fine, but that doesn't mean you can't still be a carrier and can't still hurt others with this. Be empathetic, be compassionate, understand that you're not doing this just for you, but for humanity as a whole. Look at the bigger picture. 

Please, for the sake of the world, stay indoors, stay safe, and wash your hands!

This is a lovely piece and I really like the meaning behind it/your description. Times are hard and I can only people will respect others and stay at home.

Thank you! I really hope people do as well. I've already had arguments with people here that just don't understand why they need to stay inside or at least act responsibly. I live in Florida, so right now we have people going to the beaches that just opened up and have people congregating again... Yet the case numbers are still rising here. :/ It's crazy how selfish and self-absorbed lot of people have become.

Thankfully, I haven't gotten into any arguments about that - it would get too heated ^^; Ahh, I live in Florida as well! I was completely astounded when they would opened up the beaches, I don't think we've reached our peak in numbers yet either. The world just keeps getting crazier and crazier it seems...

A lot of people are being... Crazy is the only word I can use to describe it. I originally come from the UK, my family is still over there, people over there are burning down 5G cellphone towers because they think they 'spread Corona'. It just baffles me. I can only hope that they find a vaccine for it at some point so that things can start improving again and the cabin fever people seem to be suffering from can fade!

I think crazy is the nicest way to say it... and my goodness, I didn't know about that. I don't even know how to respond to that but yes, I do hope for a vaccine soon, so everyone can return to their normal life!
