Definition of Home

In Webster’s new world dictionary, the definition of home is, “A place where one lives, a house, apartment etc.” but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
A home isn’t a building or a town it’s much more. Home is a state of mind
Although everyone has a different idea of what home is, to me, home is my family. It’s my parents, my sister, and my dog Charlie. Home is where I can relax after a stressful day of school. It’s also where I celebrate the good times and gather with the ones I love during the bad times.
Home can mean a lot of different things to various people, but it should never mean a park bench or a cardboard box. It fills me with joy to help someone experience a better definition of home.
