The Grapes of Wrath in Modern Society

Daily Mail talks about people living in shipping containers in and around San Francisco. As I looked at the images, they reminded me of something I’ve seen in a movie somewhere. It was as if The Grapes of Wrath, art based on life, had become modernized as life imitating art. The people who live in these containers have done a very smart thing. Although it does not seem very comfortable, it gives them a chance at a career, better control over personal resources and that could lead to greater long-term freedom. A life.
