What a Home Means to Me

Houses, they give shelter, carry memories, keep YOU safe, and build a whole other community with friends, family, and even neighbors! But what about the people who don’t have HOMES? Some people don’t have homes because of a horrible mistake or had something taken away from them. Never assume things. When you see someone on the street on the street, you may assume that they have a long story that brings to being homeless but in the end, we should help them. They are still the same as us. Even when people have rental homes, they don’t really have a permanent environment for their family. Kids who have the thought of running away. Those who want to run away think they are not safe due to all their emotions, but really they don’t realize how lucky they are to have a home. Houses are very important, not just to keep us safe and warm but also make a caring community.
