「Grandma / Lost Touch」 by Ayse Elif Aydinli (Turkey)
I lost both of my grandma and grandpa last year, I happen to take a photo with my hand together with my grandma's hand while they were alive. When I see the name of the theme "What Home Means to Me" It just reminded me of her and this photo while we spent time together, and I wanted to name the photo "The Lost Touch". Our elderly people always remind us of the warm and joyful togetherness we had in the past and also I realized that whenever as a family we come together from living each in different cities and also countries some as well; they were the ones who brought us together and spent a quality time together as relatives . Because, in our country, when there is a special holiday, we first go to kiss the hands of our elderly or whoever is older than us, as a sign of respect and a gesture; we first kiss their hands then put their hands on our forehead. Even during their last days, all of the family members gather together in one house which was the house I had lived in. Even then, I felt the care of Home and what actually means that home is people(Family) not the roof on top of our heads.

「Home Is Where The Road Is」 by Wally A Corona (United States)
Not everyone gets to keep their childhood home. Some move around too often, never setting familial roots. Others have it ripped from them at the hands of a natural or financial disaster. For me, home is a nap on wheels with the people who know me best.
