The meaning of home

The meaning of home to me is, a place I feel safe, where I feel loved, a place where I’m not alone, I have a roof over my head, Where I am warm and a place where I matter, a place I can eat, sleep, and keep clean. Home also means you are healthy, you breathe in fresh air and people support you. Another thing is happiness a home means happiness, people say ‘home is where the heart is’ and that means no matter where you live as long as you feel safe, loved and happy, but it’s much better to live in a nice home with a roof over your head. The people who are homeless don’t deserve to be homeless. It’s sad to think about the poor ones who have to sit in the rain under a tree with a bag full of two things, people deserve a bedroom, a kitchen to cook the best things, family friends and love. Home is when you have clean clothes lots to wear for everyday, a jacket to keep warm in the winter, a nice warm bed to sleep in, a living room where you can relax with your family and friends.

My idea is true, home should mean the ideas I shared with you, because if your home is not the same as the peaceful place I say here then it’s not home, as long as you feel safe loved warm and all the positive things, its home.
