The Meaning Of Home

What makes a home, a home? Well, you need a foundation, roof, walls, windows, doors and heaters. But what makes a home,a home is not all about the technology inside, it’s about the people who live in it. When I had a rough day at school, the people who greet me makes me feel better. They give me nice food and fresh water. I feel bad for homeless person, because they don’t have food in the fridge, nice place to sleep and feel safe and warm. We are lucky to be in an awesome place live in, and sometimes we take it for granted. And the people that are homeless, sometimes it’s not their fault. Whenever I am hungry, I go to the fridge and get a snack. When I am tired, I go to my room. I have a routine to follow. But a homeless person, their life is a bumpy ride when a storm is happening, I look out the window and see the storm, I feel what it’s like to be outside. But homeless people have to do that. When you feel bad, tired and hurt, home is your go to option, right? We say that because trust and love our home. But where will a homeless man go? I would know where to go, what to do and who will help me. So, have you changed your opinion about what makes a home, a home?
