A Home

A home is not a home if you don’t have family.
A home is not a home if you don’t have friends.
A home is somewhere where it’s happy, thoughtful and calm.
A Home is not a home if it does not have deep powerful love. A home with a big roof and big walls means a lot to a lot of poor lonely people . A home isn’t just a roof and four or more walls. It’s a place for family and friends, and it means a lot to a lot of people. If a home does not have a family it’s just a house. Who will feed you dinner every day? Who will take care of you every night? And all the people who do have homes are lucky because over 4 million people in this world don’t have a roof, walls or even families.
The real meaning of home is somewhere where there’s family and love. A lot of people in this world don’t have that and really really want that. And that’s what I think the real meaning of home is, to have family and someone around.

That’s what a home is.
