What Home Means to Me

Why are there people in this world who do not have a home? Why shouldn’t they? Everyone who was created and brought into this world should have a home. I want to help those who do not have a home for their family. Please help me find a way to fix that .

Whenever I think about not having a home for my family it sends cold shivers through my body. Spending time with my family is one of the best things that has happened to me in life. I think we should share that love, that warmth and that light. We have plenty of room in this giant, wonderful world. We are very capable of sharing this space by building homes for all families who don’t have one! I would have to draw a picture to really tell you what home means to me but I will try to tell you everything that I can: If I did not have my family, I don’t know what I would do in this world! I am so grateful to my parents, for they have given me so much love and joy. They make me food and buy me clothes! They are some of the kindest people I have ever made the acquaintance of. I don’t know what I would do without my parents. You would have to open my heart to really know how much I love them. That is why we should all share that kindness and light with all people who don’t have a home. I wish for everyone to have more sunshine and more happiness, joy and love.
