Meaning of Home

The word “home” means something different to every person in the world. Everyone has a different home and a different meaning for it.

When I think of home, I think of safe. I think of somewhere I can rest. I think of love. I live in an old red brick house with an old wood door. Every time I see my house I think of all the good memories I’ve made in it. Memories from my childhood and the crazy things I did. Some people are not as fortunate as me.

Some people don’t even have a home. Some people only have bad memories about their home. Memories about war or conflict. Memories that have changed their lives forever. For this reason we have people all over the world helping and working hard to help people feel safe in their homes. For example, Habitat for Humanity is running this contest to help all those people without a home, and I think it was a very generous idea.

When I think of home I think about how grateful I am to have one. So be grateful for your home. Know that you are very lucky for your home will always support you and bring good memories for the rest of your life.
