The Meaning of Home

What is home like without family? Home would probably be really sad and lonely. I would feel really alone. What would it be like with no friends? I know what it feels like. It is not very pleasant. You feel not important. That’s why you need a family and friends to fill a home.

What is the importance of home? The importance of home to me is you have so many memories that remind you that you are loved. You also have family and pets who love you. You need a roof over your head and a bed to sleep in. This is a wonderful place to wake up to.

It is hard to believe some people do not have a house or a home. They do not have family to be with. They do not have toys to play with, pets to love or friends to visit. I wish people would have a safe home with a family and feel laughter and joy.
