The Meaning of Home

The Meaning of Home

Home. Home is a place that brings laughter and happiness like during a birthday, a party, a special event or a tradition. Home is where my family comforts me and my dog loves me so much.

Home is a very comfortable place and each day I think about the people who do not have a home. Even though my home isn’t always clean, I love it because it gives me the protection and I always look forward to coming back there.

Home is also a place where I can eat food comfortably without any worry of severe weather coming inside.

Home is also a place where I make mistakes (a lot of mistakes) and I am very lucky that I do not have to live on the street or in the middle of nowhere.

I hope the 735,000 homeless children receive help through my participation and others who have also submitted an entry.
