Home is an Ocean

The ocean is like my home whether I’m inside my house or on a canoe. Home is like a beach with clean water and warm sand. Home is like a forest filled with old growth. Home is like a river. My family and I are the salmon going upstream in a never ending circle. Home is like a mountain that we’re holding with our hands. We have to support it till it reaches the clouds. Home is a wind blowing through the desert on a very hot night. A house is made with brick a home is so much more. Home is my mom, dad, sister, and dog just simply walking with me. Everyone deserves a home no matter who you are. Thank you Habitat for Humanity.
