Home Means Hope

Home Means Hope
By: Sophie Shoemaker

For me, home means hope.
Home is my liberty and freedom all wrapped into one.
Home is my safe place.
Homes can move with you. As long as you are loved and happy, even the strangest place can be home.
Home is where I can say what is on my mind.
But if some people don’t have homes,
They don’t have liberty and freedom,
They are not safe,
They are not happy,
They cannot express themselves.

But, if we give them all homes, they will have hope. Why? Because home means hope.
