When will it end?

Inspiration

Even as a kid, I thought China was really far away and who knows if I'll ever see a piece of the Great Wall of China. Years go by and I wonder... do I ever want to go to China again?
I'm from the Czech Republic, we belong, thank you, to the European Union, we're from an unfree China halfway around the world, and yet a tiny virus has arrived that has killed, for my taste, too many people. I'm angry, I'm frustrated, and I'm scared.
