What is Home

What is Home

What is home? That question is not something most people ask themselves very often. Take a second and think about all those people who have lost their homes and houses to war, terrorists and poverty. If that was not bad enough think of the friends or family they also lost. And every day what is going through their minds. “What is home to me?” “When will I find a home or house?” How do you think they feel? Think about the people you see on the streets. Before they wound up there did they lead a normal life? What are they thinking every time someone just walks by them? Now think back to the question I asked at first. What is home? Now do you have an answer? I’m sure that some homeless people do. If you have any good memories of home, think about those. Do the people on the streets have the joy of having those good memories of childhood. For some people the streets are all they remember from their childhood. That is why I am writing, to give families happy memories. Because I think that every person deserves happy memories and a home.
