Meaning of Home Essay

What comes to mind when you think of home? When I think of home, I think of being safety, warmth, loved, but it’s too bad that not everyone can have that.

Wouldn’t it be nice for everyone to have a place to call home? Just think, people wouldn’t have to fall asleep concerned about what is going to happen to their house or how much they are going to have to pay for the next water bill with the money they don’t have. Everyone should be able to cherish and make memories with each other, but over all, everybody should feel safe in their own home.

I know I can’t tell you exactly what it is like not having a home, but I know it is not a walk in the park. Although I can imagine some of the feelings that comes with not having a safe environment to live in, you’re not happy! All of the time thoughts are running through your head of things of whats going to happen to you home, so Wouldn’t it be nice if nobody would have to say that on a daily basis? That brings me to another feeling, what is it like to live in a safe environment

Safety, warmth, love. That’s what a home should be made out of. Lots of people go believing their house is all of those things when really their house is in no condition to live in because they don’t know what a safe environment really is. In fact, I believe that nobody should have to live in these severe conditions. What is a home to others? Nobody should be living in these conditions. By this time I really hope you know that my only wish is that everybody can have a place to call home.
