Meaning of home

Dear judges today is not the day I sent this letter but the day you read it.

I live in a big house with my sister, my mom, my dad, my dog, and my cat. My home is the coziest home I have ever lived in, it’s pretty special saying I have moved three times (one house only for a few weeksmonths) now I just want to tell you a little story that I don’t think I knew until my parents told me in year 2016 so when I lived in Chilliwack and we were not even close to moving my house in Comox had a pretty big fire (it’s hard to believe cause it looks so nice now) my roof fell down and a whole bunch of other thing happened but I can’t remember all of it .So back to where I live now, it’s a lot safer to walk to school in Comox, if I were to walk to school in Chilliwack I could be stolen or even murdered. I feel much safer to be walking in the open non gassy air. To be in a place like my home makes me feel amazing and I know for a fact if I lived in Chilliwack, I would be very scared to go to sleep and walk to school knowing that there could be a murderer out there somewhere. I don’t think I realized when I was little that there are some people out there that don’t have a home and really wish to have one but for that reason, I feel good to have a home in a safe place with safe people and a beautiful family. My home means a lot I have never been somewhere as comfortable as this.
