Giles-Meaning Of Home

A home is a place where you can call safe, a place where you can call home. I think of a home as a living area, at a home you should be able to eat sleep and cook. At home there are basic living access, for example, a bathroom, kitchen and a bedroom. Also a home is usually safe and a place you won’t be scared. It broke my heart when I found out that some people don’t have homes. When someone is homeless, they have nowhere to call safe, a place where they can’t call home. Homeless people can’t afford houses and some have to sleep under bridge. It is very harsh to be homeless, with no food or water. We can all help and fight against homelessness by donating to a company called Habitat for Humanity. I believe that homelessness can be stopped. Many will be homeless if someone won’t stand up and fight against this agony. One day, homelessness won’t exist and the world will be a better place.
Facts:
