My Home

Most people know the saying, ‘home is where the heart is’ and I believe in it. The best place in the world is my home. Me sitting in my cozy bed reading or writing. Spending time with my family, keeping me warm from a blizzard. I think the meaning of a home is for shelter or to keep you safe. Your home is something you should cherish when you’er with your loved ones. Another meaning of home to me is somewhere you can’t control your feelings that you have inside of you. My family or friends are always there for me when I need them.
Everyone who has a home sometimes takes advantage of it but to have a place to call home is lucky. Maybe people need to recognize that not everyone has a home. Adults who don’t have a home – even children! All over people have had something happen in their lives that have made them homeless, or without a family. I think the word for that warm feeling everyone has is caring. People realize what is going on in their lives and change it. There are still people who don’t realize what it’s like to not have everything they want. They also don’t know what it’s like to live outside around people who do not care. My home is something I do cherish. Other people do not, which is something that needs to change.

In conclusion,whoever wins this contest will be congratulated by the people in their home and will change people’s lives. One day all people will have homes and won’t be suffering.
