Any house can be a home

All children deserve a home and childhood, A time to learn and a place to grow. But some children don’t even have a chance to have that. Home is a place to be you, a place to be free and to be honest. But there are still children dying on the streets, I’m just glad that there is charity to get them back on their feet. A child can dream, but having to dream about feeding is just sad. Some kids, even adults don’t have warmth, only a box all night. I am in pain when I think that some get slain, but at least we can donate our time for the struggling. Home is a place that keeps you warm and happy even if it’s not yours. If you have old clothes, the least you can do is donate yours. I’m lucky to have a home, a place to stay and a place to play. Every child should be just as lucky and as happy as me.
