The Meaning of Home

The meaning of home is very important to me and many other people. Home is also not a place, it is a feeling. There are many people out there who don’t have homes, don’t have beds, nothing to live in or to sleep on.They also don’t have a lot of hope and feelings. A home can tell you things about dreams for life in the future. How do you think they live like this? How do you think they cooperate with nature and homes? I think it is because they know how poor life works, that is why we have to change people’s lives, until there is a smile on everybody’s face. No more people live in the streets and sleep on cardboard, we have to make a change .How would you feel if you lived on the streets?Nothing like you feel now, right?
So wherever you are, in a bank, a place of worship, even in the park, please donate for the sick and poor. I want to help the people to have a better life in a house like you do. You could change their lives and be thanked. It is our duty for them to live in a home and dreams will come true. Sometimes, I walk on the sidewalk and see either big mansions, or blankets and cardboard on the floor. I sometimes wonder, “where are the people that live in this junk?” I also sometimes feel very sad for that person and at least leave them some coins to live with.One day I went to France with my family, and saw a dropped coin. I picked it up with me to buy something. But then when I was walking, I saw a poor lady begging for money.I thought about keeping it to myself. But then I thought again and gave her the coin. She said “Merci beaucoup”(Which means thank you so much).I said “De rein”(which meant your welcome). That was about 2 years ago and I still remember. Maybe when I go to France again, she might give back the favour. Home is life, family, and fun, and especially love.You should care and not ignore. Many people say that “the respect that has been handed, will be brought back to you”.Even though you don’t get it back, you know you did the right thing. Charity and kindness will help people and you. Donate today for the sake of the people and me. If we work together we can save people’s lives. There are people that are living in extreme poverty and can not survive. It was not all these poor people’s faults that the government and the ruler is making it worse for them.They just can’t find food, shelter, and furniture.I also learned that one small act of kindness can make a big difference
They really need our help, and at least help people in your community and never give up on helping and caring for even normal people that you don’t know.I love to help poor people, and after you read this you will too.
