What home means to me

The meaning of home means to be comfortable and to relax
and that is not an opinion. It’s a fact.

Home does not have to be a house, it can be anything! Like a dance studio or a dojo. Home means where you think you belong, and where you feel confident with your race, looks or gender.

A home is a place where you can be yourself and be with your friends or family. A home is also where you succeed and get things like homework done, even though its work I have lots of resources I can access at home!

A home is where memories and where lessons are taught. At home there are a lot of rules that need to be followed, but that’s ok because I’m willing to listen to all of those rules. I am really grateful to have a home where I belong because some people don’t have the best homes, they just call the streets their homes. So I am very lucky.

Now that I have donated $10 to habitat for humanity I might just be able to save one person that is living on the streets, so they can have a house to call “home”. A home is one of the main priorities to live and I think everyone should have one even if it’s an apartment or something small. The reason why I’m doing this is because even $10 can make a difference and help someone who needs it.
