The meaning of Home

Today I’m going to talk about what my home means to me. My home is a place where I can get comfort whenever I need it. My home is a place where I always feel welcome. If you think about it lots of people don’t have a house. Imagine if you didn’t have a house. I know it would be horrible. We are so lucky because not only do we have a house but we have a home. A house is just a structure that keeps you dry and warm. But a home is a place where you feel welcome, a place where you can go and never be told to leave. It is a place where you eat, sleep and live. That’s why it’s important to have a home.

Just imagine if we lived in our homes but it was just a house a place where we felt absolutely no comfort. We would never want to live like that would we? Exactly we wouldn’t. So just stop and think. We need to do something. We need to fix this. So let’s all join together. Grab hands and help. I hope after reading my entry more and more people will enter. We need to raise this money, every entry helps because with every entry there is ten dollars raised. So come on and let’s help out. Just think how happy you would be if someone did this for you when you were in the situation without a home or even a house. I really, really hope that whoever is reading this has a heart and will help raise the money.

Everybody needs a home. Everyone should have a safe place no matter what. Well, thanks for listening and I hope that I have touched your heart.
