My home is a sanctuary, a place of transformation. Where sadness is turned to laughter and tears are greeted with hugs.

When you think of a sanctuary most might think calm and quiet but in order for me to feel like I’m home, it has to be loud and exciting. No matter who or what you are you should always have a home.

Some people might think their family is annoying or embarrassing but I don’t think I could consider it home unless my family is with me.

This essay is written to help people who don’t have a home so if this essay wins I hope that it helps a family get home because everybody deserves a home.
