Finally I’m Home…

Finally I’m Home…
Dinggg! Finally the bell, I get out and sprint as fast as I can so I don’t get trampled by all the grade 7’s and 8’s who come rushing down the stairs trying to get out the door. I get on the really hot bus and go home. As soon as I get home I go straight to the fridge to get some food (most likely junk food). Then I run upstairs and get into my cozy bed with warm sheets. Finally I’m home. Home is a place where I feel safe, don’t get judged and can be who I want to be.
The meaning of home to me is when you get home from a tiring day at school, walk in the door and know there is going to be a fridge full of food and cozy sheets on your bed. Home is a place where nobody gets left out and there’s no math. Home is a place that is not so quiet and not so calm. Home is a place that can be very hectic. Well at least mine is. I know that we’re always rushing around but I’m so used to being rushed out of the house it doesn’t bother me as much as it used to.
My home is a place where you feel loved and are always there for each other when we need it the most. In my home there is lots of laughter and tears. My home is a place where there is always a hot meal on the table. Home is one of my favourite places because I can talk to anyone about anything and everybody is really loving and caring. I am so glad I have a home to live in where everybody is really loving and caring.
I believe that everybody should have a home even if they have done not so good things. There are a lot of homeless people in the world and the next time you see one on the side on the road or anywhere you should always smile or even wave because that could make their whole month. Did you know that there are about 100 million homeless people in the world? Don’t complain that you don’t like your food or something because think of all the other people who have nothing.
There are so many homeless people in the world and I think that we should do anything we can do to help. This essay taught me to not take anything for granted, to be grateful and always help the homeless in need. Next time I see a homeless person I’m always going to say hello or wave. I wonder how much money they’re going to raise this year. I challenge everybody to do something nice every time you see a homeless person on the streets even if it’s just a simple smile or wave.
