My Idea of Home: Is it On the Range? or Out of Range?

The near perfect view that reflects our shining country and its reach for even brighter principles; this is my idea of home. This is the White House. My home is in America.


My grandmother shared her dreams of owning a big, white house with columns and a huge yard. In my ‘united’ home we are free to share. In a capitalistic market I am free to build my idea of home: providing for loved ones, like my grandmother, and those who are less fortunate than me. I would not be where I am in life without the help of others. I definitely would not be the kind-hearted, lovable person if I was raised under strict and depleting conditions.


I am a man of faith in GOD. May I venture to say the White House could be a type of heaven? Heaven will be mine and other believer’s home soon. True leaders are destined for both places. The white paint could stand for purity given to the faithful through the blood of Jesus.


In my home I am allowed to aim high. Though I will not likely ever live in Washington D.C., I still have dreams of changing my home for the better.


My dream has always been to learn to fly, so a home with enough space to land an airplane and/or helicopter would be an idea life. Ha! In a country where there is no political ceiling to keep us from flourishing I can take-off from my modest strip of land and aim for the stars.
My true home will always be in Heaven; but this is a great place to spend my life till I get there.
