What Does Home Mean to You?

Home represents a place of sanctuary and comfort. What makes a home? Is it love and comfort? Is it a location? Some people may never truly feel at home anywhere, while others can make anything their home. For those of us who wander, is it that we have not yet found a home, or do we feel at home everywhere? The concept of home has long been understood. But, the meaning of home is intangible and has many facets. Home can be a state, a town, a house, and perhaps even a person or a feeling. So, what does home mean to you?
