The Meaning of Home

Home is the best place in the world.
Home is where I do all my favorite stuff like celebrate birthdays and holidays, play with my little brother, play with my Lego and PS4 and fight with my big sister. Home is where my mom and dad come home after work and where we have meals together. Home is where I have a warm and cozy bed and I watch Discovery on TV.
Some people don’t have that.
I think about homeless people who have nothing, no home, no room, and they have to sleep outside in the cold. I think about children in Syria who lost their homes and sometimes parents to war. Imagine if one of us were that person. Life would be so hard.
I am lucky to have a home. Home is not just a house it’s a part of my family.
