Meaning of Home

I finally return home from a long and hard day of school. I pull the door open and walked to the kitchen. I yank out my homework and started putting on the tv while munching on a delicious snack.
Home, home is a place where you feel safe and comfortable. Home is a place where you’ll never judged by your cover and always be loved. Me and my family always have good and bad times but that never means you’ll be apart by heart. Some people think a home is something you get but, that’s not the case. I remember when my mom told me how my family moved to Canada. They moved here more than a decade ago, at one point my mom had to find a job and a home to live in. My family also didn’t have a vehicle for three and a half years after they arrived, so they took a cab or walked everywhere they needed to go. It was also hard for them to make ends meet.
As you heard my family was struggling, but there are homeless people who live on cold and I hardgrounds and trying to make ends meet. The homeless all want or need a family to make them feel loved and safe as well. They also want a hot meal on their table every night but it never happens.
I believe that everyone should always have a hot meal on their table and a roof over their heads. We should all have a family or a friend by our side no matter what. I’m sure glad that I have a home, friends and family to rely on.
