What Home Means to Me

Home is very special to me because it is comfortable and cozy. Home means safety and shelter from harmful things. Home can be really fun and relaxing when you talk to family. I like home better than everything else because it can provide supplies when we need them. When I think about people not having a home or comfort on their own property, I get really sad because maybe they might not have the money. This is why we need to raise money so these people can take better care of themselves and actually eat good food and not have to sit on the side of the street asking for spare change. If you were put in that lifestyle it would be hard. These innocent people that are left on the street with no money or bed to sleep in. it could really mess you up man….. 🙁 and it would warm my heart to see at least some of these innocent human-beings could have a home and feel loved and trusted. It makes you want to make a change so this is why we need to make one.

My home is very beautiful and I am grateful that I have food, water and supplies. It makes me feel like I don’t have to be worried or scared all the time because I have a trusting family that takes care of me. At home you can take care of yourself like brushing your teeth, taking showers and washing your hands. I don’t have to worry about being out in the rain or snow. My home is a place where I feel trusted and loved for who I am. Home is a place where I can rest and sleep without having to worry about things that can hurt me.
