A Place Called Home

Home is a place you feel safe. A home is a place with family, who support you, help you through hard times and troubles. Home may be a place for watching tv and playing video games, but it is also a place you can be yourself free from judgement. Home can even be a place that feels like home just to you, for example, the library, or even a room in your house that you feel safer in than another. Home is a place a lot of people take for granted. You have to remember that some people don’t have a home. In fact, 2,181 people are without homes in Vancouver alone. An estimated 100 million people in the world overall are homeless, and 1.6 billion lack aquedate housing. Home is a place to love and be loved, and a place definitely not to be taken for granted.
