What is a Home?

A home is a place where you and your family live. It is a place where on cold days you feel warm, a place where you can sleep in your bed under a roof on rainy, cold nights. A home is a place you feel like you can do anything like eat in a bathrobe all day or sled down the stairs.
The meaning of a home is a place to live where you feel like you’re special. But some people don`t have that. Those people are living on the street or in a house that is not safe, that might fall apart. They do not have money to buy a home or a better home which we should do something about it.
Homeless people and people who do not have safe homes should be in proper homes where they feel happy, like we do in our homes. They should be able to feel like they can do anything such as eat in their bathrobe all day or sled down the stairs. They should be warm when it is cold and sleep under a good roof on rainy, cold nights. They should be happy like us.
