I love my home because there’s so much to do all the time. I am so thankful that I have a house, a roof, and lots of things to play with. Some people don’t even have enough money, which is really sad if you think about it. 😥 Whenever I see the poor I feel SO BAD FOR THEM!😭

I just wish everybody had a shelter to live in. What I don’t understand is how some people can live without electricity. Because we need electricity for lights, heat, cooking, entertainment, etc. We are lucky to have what we have.

Now let’s talk about what you can do at your house. You can hang out with family and friends. And if that’s not an option you can play outside. And if it’s too dark out or something, you can go on an electronic, I guess. I hope there are less homeless people and people have more money in the future. I hope they can actually afford things like a car, a house, and clothing. But they don’t have any of that now, well, they probably have clothes but not clean ones because they have had that one shirt or pair of pants for so long! But if we all write a poem or an essay we can all help the homeless. That’s why I wrote this essay – because I want to help them out. Because they’re probably struggling right now with their health, and food. I hope the future gets better for them.
