Meaning of Home

What do you think home is? Home is a place where you are safe, loved, and warm.

When I enter my house after a long day of school I feel happy to see my loved ones. I also feel safe from any harm . Home shouldn’t be a place where you feel all stressed out and forsaken. Home should be a place where you can talk about your problems with your family.

In Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne is an orphan and never had a real home with a family and whenever she entered a house it was to take care of the many kids the mothers had back then. It was a nice change when she knew she wasn’t in for work but that she was adopted and now loved. In the book Fatty legs by Christy Jordan-Fenton and Margaret Pokiak-Fenton, Margaret was taken from her home to a residential school and stayed there for over a year. She didn’t like it because she was unloved and not with her family where she belonged. In the book Un Blouson Dans la Peau by Marie-Francine Hébert, Méli Mélo had a small house filled with love. When she had a chance to get inside the luxurious house of her classmate she realized it’s not about luxury but about the love in one’s home.

Everyone should have a home where they feel safe, loved, and warm.
