Home is…

Home is where I first learned to play sports and where I took my first steps. I said my first word there. Home is a place where I feel safe and cared for. It’s a place where I sit down at the kitchen table and have a meal with my great family. It’s a place where I can go outside and play with no limits.
Home is a great place but…to know there’s people out there in the streets of my own town because they have no home. It hurts to think they have nothing, and nobody. That is why I wrote this – not to raise money for me but for them, the ones out there WITH NO HOME.
