Home

Home to me is where I feel safe with family or friends. I don’t even care if it has a TV. A tarp roof would be fine with me. All I need is to feel safe, warm and have family with me, then I’d be fine. You probably think that you would never be homeless. Just think that one day your home was gone, and all you ever had went with it. All you have to survive is what you have in your bag. Then all you have to eat is dirt. What if it started snowing? You wouldn’t have the proper clothing and you’d be freezing. At this point you might feel like all you ever had is gone. Homeless people never had a home or they did but it’s been gone for a long time. People like that don’t get to see their family on special occasions like us.
