What Home Means To Me

What Home Means To Me
Every day I get home and flop on my couch thinking I would like a ring like the one my friend has, but then when I take a minute to think it over I realize thousands of people in this country don’t have enough money to buy a ring or afford a home.
Shelter is one of the things you need for survival. Have you ever seen someone homeless and all dirty because they don’t have showers? People like you and I, we are all clean and we have clean clothes to wear and a home to live in.
Some things we take for granted. Imagine being homeless. It’s a privilege to have a home. Take a minute to think before asking for that next thing that your friend might have that you don’t and start taking steps to help those who need a helping hand.
