The Meaning of Home

Home is special to me because the activities and people I love the most are there. It is a very relaxing place where I can play my video games anytime and read long chapter books snuggled in my bed. Home gives me privacy where I am sheltered from the world and can enjoy a very long bath without people waiting for me to finish. Being at home makes all my worries disappear so I feel carefree. My home is very warm because if I was homeless I would freeze in the winter. Comforts of home to me are sleeping in without wind blowing in my ears. Another comfort of home is my family because they make me feel safe, they know me best, and love and care for me all the time. They also provide my favourite foods like macaroni and cheese and ice cream.

When I walk down the street and see people who are homeless, I feel sad for them, guilty, and helpless that we are not doing anything to support them. If I had all the money in the world I would buy homes for the people who need them so that they can feel calm and cared for. I wish all the people in the world had the comforts of home like I luckily have.
