What home means to me, is a place where everyone should have enough clothing and food to spare for a long time.
What home means to me, is a place where all kids know their home, bottom to top , whether with perfect vision or with no vision at all.
What home means to me, is a place where everyone should hear their parents’ soothing voices, whether with perfect hearing or with no hearing at all.
What home means to me is a place where all adults and kids should be able to climb on to their beds for a good night’s sleep.
