Meaning of Home

To me, home is a place where I belong. It is where I can truly be myself. I think that home is peaceful and safe. Coming home always makes me feel happy and relaxed. Sometimes home isn’t a place, it’s a feeling. I think that home feels like comfort and confidence. My home is with the people I love and trust. Home isn’t always filled with furniture. Home might be a hollow tree or a field or a pond. Though we would never just suddenly destroy a person’s home, people seem to think it’s okay to do that to animals. They don’t realize that a family of robins might have lived there, or that maybe that field is home to field mice. They throw their trash into the homes of fish and frogs and many more things, but homes are just as important to animals as they are to us. I think that if homes are important to all people and animals, we should be respectful to all homes.
