Home Sweet Home

One of my favourite places to be is my home. Home means a lot to me. When I don’t feel safe, I think of home. I feel like my home is the safest place to be. I also feel free and comfy in my home. But, there are probably a lot of people who don’t have homes. When I think of that I feel sad and afraid that they might get hurt.
There a lot of stuff I can do in my home. But what I like most is being able to have a bed to sleep in and stay warm in the coldness. I feel that I’m not lucky, but when you compare me with people who don’t have homes, I am very lucky.
I learnt at school about kids who don’t have homes and the kids live in stuff that I would think of as “garbage”. I want to make a difference. I want them to have better homes and that’s why I wrote this. I hope you enjoyed my writing about home.
