What home means to me

Home is where I’m hugged and loved. Home is where I am warm under my bed sheets. I think everyone should have a home and wish they could. Before bed there’s always a nice fire to keep me warm in my bed. When I’m at home I have family for support and walls for safety. I think everyone should have that too. I like to sit down, listen to some music and enjoy the safety I have. I think of my family and every family should be the luckiest people in the world, even the people without houses should be lucky too. I am grateful for my food, my water, my comfortable bed and my family. I think everyone should be grateful for what they have. Even if some people don’t have money I think we should help them even if you don’t want to. I think poor people should have the same opportunities in their life as others.
I think everyone should be able to go to school, go to work and make their dreams come true. I think wherever family is, is home even if you don’t have walls or roofs or beds I think it’s still home.
I am grateful for this writing contest. Even if I don’t win I still give money to charity.
