Home is a place where you should feel love and affection. As soon as I walk in, I feel the warmth of my home and I can smell the food my mom is cooking. Home is a safe place where you can express your feelings.

Home is a place where your family is always there. If I’m sad, my mom makes me glad. If I am bored, my sisters, Shawna and Raya play with me. Home is a place where you know and trust everyone around you. Where I can always play with my dog, Mocha.

Home is a place where I have my own room. Where I sleep and draw and work. Home is where there’s a variety of food and drink. When I’m home, I feel safe and secure. My family is always there for me. We can always do things together. Like game nights and movie nights.

So when I think of people who do not have what I have, it makes me feel really sad. Everyone needs a home and the things in it. A nice home to live in is a right!
