Meaning of home

To me, home is not a place, it is my people, and wherever they are is home to me. No matter what, if it’s a building, a trailer, or a tent, I will always have a home as long as I have family. My home is wherever my family stays, wherever we find shelter, as long as they’re there, that is home. If the building falls, or if the shelter collapses home stays with the heart. No matter what, you can lose the building, but you can’t lose the memories. As long as you treasure the memories you have of your home, it isn’t really ever gone. If you refuse to keep the memories of it in your heart, it might as well have not existed in the first place.
