Home is your life

Home is a place where you can be yourself, be treated with all the respect you can ever get and where you learn. Home makes you feel safe, protected from the cruel world ahead of you. In life you face a lot of challenges, but when you come home, you overcome the fears you have of the world. Your family is a huge part of your life, and they live at home. Home is where you get encouraged, motivated, energized, confident, brave and so much more things. I just can’t express how grateful I am to have a home and a family. Some people don’t have a home, they live on the streets. Imagine, if there are so many people in the world, and almost one continent is in poverty, then how is our earth going to have a future? If we care about the whole world, we can make this planet a better place. For sure. Home is where your life starts. The best memories are created at home. Be grateful for the home you have. Be thankful to have a family if you have one. Home can mean different things to people. One word to describe home is safe. To me, home would probably be the safest place I know. Home means so much to me, but there is so much more I can tell you. Home is your life. Thank you for this opportunity.
