When I saw *Under the Overpass*, I thought "Hey, this sounds interesting. I'd like to read it." After I started reading it, I found it was more than interesting. I didn't realize how much this book would show me.
We don't really think about the people we pass on the street. We don't think about how hard it must be to be homeless. Do we even see those people as human, sometimes? Even though we don't realize it, I think we sometimes forget they're just like us.
It made me think, honestly. I try to love people no matter what, but what would I do if I had a chance to do something for a homeless person? Would I help? Or would I do the same as others might... look at that person in disgust, and walk away? I say I'm a Christian, but so did others that Mike mentioned in this book. Yet some of them walked right by Mike and Sam as they sat on the streets. Sadly even a few churches turned them away.
I think this was a great book, and one everyone needs to read. We need to realize just what some people have to go through.
Thanks to WaterBrook Multnomah for the book!
