A home is a place to make you feel happy and joyful! Everybody loves the feeling of coming home to your family after a long day.

A home is a place to be with the people you love. Those people can be your mother, father, grandparents, friends, and so many more people who you love.

A home is a place to do what you love. That can be playing games, dancing, singing, watching a movie, or even just listening to your favorite songs!

A home is a place to focus on the present. A place to not worry about things in the future or what happened in the past. It’s a place to focus on what you are doing in the moment and live your life without any fear.

A home is a place to let your emotions flow. A place you can share how you are feeling. A place to be sad, happy, angry, or even afraid. But your home will always have someone there to help and cheer you up.

A home is a place to just be you! A place where you can sing your heart out and dance the night away! It is a place to not to worry of what people think of you and be the person you want to be!

But 1.7 million Canadians don’t have homes and don’t have a place to go. We should all be thankful because we are all very lucky to have a safe place to live in with shelter and a roof over our heads. We all just need to pray. To pray to god that they will all find a home to live in and then those 1.7 million Canadians will hopefully find where them and there family belong.
