    My Home Owns Me; I Don't Own It

    I loved having a home. I wanted the stability for the children. It was wonderful to have a yard for the children to grow up and play in. They could laugh, run, play the radio or TV loud and not worry about disturbing neighbors above, below, or immediately on the other sides of...
