The Meaning of Home

Home provides everything I need. Home is safety. Home is where I sleep and eat and learn my most important lesson. Home is awesome.

Home is where I learn my most important lessons. It is where I learn to have fun and walk. Home is where I learned to bike, ski and practice self-defense. It is where I learned to jump and play. Home is where I learned to be me.

Home is where I feel safe. It is where I go when I am hurt. Home is where I know there is always someone who can help me. It’s where I can close the door to keep out strangers. Home is my safe place.

Home is where I sleep and eat. It is where I go when I am hungry and there is always food. It is where I have my bed and can go when I am tired. Having a home keeps me alive. Home provides my needs.

Everyone should have a home and that’s why Habitat for Humanity is so great. I hope this essay will help someone in need build a house.
