What Home Means to Me

One thing home means to me a safe place to go to. The roof is keeping you dry and the walls are keeping you warm and cozy. Another part of a safe home is a safe neighborhood, with safe people.

As a kid, I look for fun in a home. In a home you can do things like gymnastics, dance, art and sleep overs and fun stuff like that. When I think about my home, it has safe food and water to eat and drink that is big thing, because a lot of people don’t have that safe food and water to eat and drink.

A home is where you can trust one and another and be you. Homes should be welcoming and warm to live in. When I think of home, I think of my family because I live with them. I also think of my friends because I usually have a friend over.

To be homeless it would mean you don’t have a home. It would be frightening to not have a home and be homeless also what would it feel like to be homeless. Would it be cold? Would it be scary? Would it be uncomfortable? What would it be like to be homeless. Just think to living without food and water some days, and not having the stuff that you need to live just like shelter , food and water. I think of trust when I think of home. And a trustful home with peace and no fighting with siblings.

That is what I think of when I think of what “home” means to me.
