Others may use words like “Family” or “Feeling.” What happens when your definition of “Home” is challenged, or even taken away from you? Whether it is leaving for college, dealing with loss in a family, or simply moving from one place to another, part of our upbringing involves redefining our meaning of “Home.”
The Chiawana Marching Band wants to invite you on this journey as our definition of home gets challenged, leaving us feeling lost and in the dark.
