The Meaning of Home

The meaning of home is a very strong feeling to me because it is a place where I can feel very safe with my family and pets. It is a place to keep me warm from everything outside that happens everyday to other kids all over the world that aren’t as lucky as some kids all over the world. Home is a place where friends can meet and friends are made. Where everyone all over the world is welcome from all different races and religions. Even if you are not the luckiest, your house of all different shapes and sizes still can feel the same as it feels to me. A home is a very lucky thing to have along with your life because it can be the reason you are alive. It is a place where you can love and be loved by family. It is a place where you can have fun without having other dangers. The world may have very bad people in very bad places but everyone is happy about their home one time in their life. And by writing this, I hope I can give other not as lucky kids all over the world a home because it just means so much to me and I can’t even think about how it would feel like if I was never safe in a nice cozy home like my own. I am very thankful to have a home but also everything I can do in it like having access to a birthday party or a pool party. My home is the best when I am safe with my family because there could be a storm just outside my house and I can’t think about what I would do without the house in that situation.
