Home

What is home for you? Home is a place where you can feel safe, a place where you can celebrate and laugh, and a place where you make memories. Home is not a thing. It is a place that can be anywhere. Read more to figure out what I think home means, and maybe you feel the same.
Firstly, home is a place where you can feel safe. You can go there when you’re sad and when you’re happy. You don’t have to be scared
when you’re at home and it makes you feel warm inside. It’s your own place where you can feel better when you’re down. Is there somewhere you feel like this? Is it a place where you feel better and safe?
Secondly, home is a place where you can celebrate and laugh. You can celebrate your birthday, Christmas, and New Year’s. You can celebrate with other people or by yourself, but it doesn’t matter because it’s home.
Thirdly, home is a place where you make memories. They can be sad memories or they can be happy memories. Hopefully your home is a safe enough place for memories to be made and you’ll remember your home forever.
Lastly, home is not a specific place, it can be anywhere. Maybe your home is at school, maybe your home is outside or maybe your home is in your room. Those are all places your home can be. Anywhere you feel safe can be your home. Hopefully everyone knows what it’s like to have a home. Do you?
In conclusion, that’s what I think a home is. It’s a place where you feel safe. A place where you can go to celebrate and laugh, and a place where you make memories. A home is not a thing, it is a place. Do you know what it’s like to have a home? If you do, what is your home?
