By Katrina

A home is very important. Especially when there are tough situations. One day I was walking home and a boy came up to me and twisted my arm. I had to go to the hospital. My arm ended up broken. One day the boy, came to say sorry and I accepted it. Then we became friends after that.

Homes also provide us with shelter. Winnipeg homes are nice and warm, but if you were homeless you would be cold. The wind would be so cold and your hands and feet would freeze. One of my family members is so poor that we give him clothes and buy him food. We give him blankets so he doesn’t freeze overnight. We bring him a pillow and a mat to sleep on.

We are lucky that we have a home to sleep in and live in.
