ESSAY - A While reading John Grishams book The St Lawyer I was reminded that homelessness is a sickness that plagues almost all of our nation I enjoyed the fact that Grisham gave different types of evidence in his book to show how bad the problem is Not only did he start off the book with Misters first hand account of homelessness but he later gives us facts as well Before reading this book I didnt have the concern that I do now for this social problem Not to say that I didnt care about the homeless on the contrary I really cared about the homeless I even have a couple homeless friends However Grishams book gave me a different insight on the issue and now my views have slightly changed I rarely jump to conclusions with homelessness I believe that homelessness can be due to a wide variety of reasons People can become homeless if they lose their jobs they get sued evicted from their homes addicted to drugs or any number of other reasons In Misters case he and a few others were evicted and some ended up dying on the streets So we see that there are a wide variety of reasons that homelessness exists Before reading Grishams book I guess I never thought deeply about how people become homeless Unfortunately in addition to myself I think most middle class Americans keep homelessness on their back-burners Pretty much everyone I meet agrees that its a problem but I personally feel that we need to do more than just be concerned In the book Grisham points out using Mister that we dont do enough if anything to help homeless people Donating money to shelters and cans for a food drive is great but I feel we can take it to the next step For me personally this means working at Friends of the night people which is a local shelter
