The unrealized idealism of Bruce Springsteen
I saw the show in Cleveland. It was a reflection on life, the difficulties one faces as we age, and a rage against the dying of the light. Those of us enjoying milestone birthdays as senior citizens know that Wrecking Ball is a challenge to Mr Death. As our friends confront cancer, loss of loved ones and dear friends, it’s nice to know The Boss still sings the soundtrack to our lives. Those promises made so many years ago still apply, blood brothers with a vow to defend. The enemy is age, illness, and death, a tough alliance. Yet we fight on. Take your very best shot.
