It is a place of refuge and its doors should always be open. It can be where you go to after a long day of work or what you land on to win the game for your team. The Merriam Webster Dictionary defines it as “one’s place of residence, the social unit formed by a family living together, or a goal to be achieved” (356)....   [tags: essays research papers]
