The Meaning of Home

Home means a different thing for all people, for some it could just be a place where you can sleep, get a meal, and then move on. For others it is a place where you feel safe and you can be loved, and I think that is how all people should feel about it, but some people don’t have the access to a place like that, and therefore can’t feel that way. So that is the reason that I am entering this contest. Even if I do not win, somebody will, and they will be able to give a bunch of money to the people who are running this contest to help the people who don’t have access to a home will be able to feel safe and happy. Knowing this makes me feel amazing, and that I am doing the right thing.

A lot of people have the wrong idea of what the meaning of home is, they always think “ I wish I had a bigger house” but they do not realize that they are very fortunate to have a house at all! Even I am like that sometimes, but now that I am writing this I realize how much people without homes long for a place to stay, and I hope that other people can realize that too.
