The Meaning of Home

I once saw a homeless man who asked me and my dad for money for a coffee. We gave him $2.00 and went to my dance class. After my class, I saw the man drinking a coffee with a smile on his face. I realized that a lot of people don’t know what home feels like.

To me, home feels like a safe place to sleep, a roof over my head, a fuzzy little dog to play with and a loving family. At home, I am safe. But the homeless are not. That is why I want to help Habitat for Humanity. Everyone needs a home.
