Bruce Springsteen Once Said…I was Born in the U.S.A.

Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen was born on September 23, 1949. Bruce is an American singer, songwriter, and musician.

One problem with the way the educational system is set up is that it only recognizes a certain type of intelligence, and it’s incredibly restrictive – very, very restrictive. There’s so many types of intelligence, and people who would be at their best outside of that structure get lost. – Bruce Springsteen

I have noticed this through the years how our educational system definitely lacks and I even remember fighting for things that were changing while I was in high school. The government loves to step in and cut different programs such as arts, physical education because they feel they it’s not necessary for them to be taught in schools. There are a lot of talented individuals and not all of them are your atypical book intelligence and those are the ones good with crafts, creativity and working with their hands which is a huge part of the foundation of America. So yes I agree that some get lost and they learn things in school that they don’t necessarily need to learn and things that could encourage personal growth and new ideas, new inventions are perhaps postponed because of a narrow minded way of putting things together for schools.

Adult life is dealing with an enormous amount of questions that don’t have answers. So I let the mystery settle into my music. I don’t deny anything, I don’t advocate anything, I just live with it. – Bruce Springsteen

It seems as if the older I get the more questions I seem to have about life and everything else. I think it’s good to be able to question things or wonder and try to figure out things. That is of course how we learn. We often walk through and not have answers to life’s mysteries but it is the wonderment that I think helps with creativity. At least for me I feel it does.

All people have is hope. That’s what brings the next day and whatever that day may bring… A hope grounded in the real world of living, friendship, work, family… – Bruce Springsteen

I have had hope a lot in my life but I have also had times where I have lost hope or felt I wasn’t going to be able to get it back. You have to fight to be able to hope to be able to get what you want in your life. What are we without hope? I know I feel lost when I lost hope. What do you hope for?
