He may be nearing sixty, but this all-American Jersey boy, a.k.a. The Boss, can still ignite a crowd! Revered for such hits as “Born in the U.S.A.” and “Secret Garden,” Springsteen continues to give his all on the stage– while simultaneously giving back to the global community.
Springsteen first collaborated with Amnesty International, which promotes human rights, in 1988 for the Human Rights Now! concert tour. Ten years later, he again joined forces with the organization on Human Rights Day in Paris (including an appearance by the Dalai Lama!).
He is also an avid supporter of World Hunger Year (WHY), whose mission is “advancing long-term solutions to hunger and poverty by supporting community-based organizations that empower individuals and build self-reliance.”
In short, this is an exemplary profile for our potential “hero” for Spina Bifida to have! Since I only found a mailing address for him, and not an E-mail, I have written a letter but will have to wait until tomorrow to send it (it’s Sunday!). Plus, my computer is in rehab, and so all I have is my little Acer laptop (“Tiny Tim”), and I have no clue how to hook him up to my printer. (Will anybody heed my call for a geek?)
But, enough of my technological woes. I have to get up early tomorrow, as I am accompanying Mom while she works at Valencia tomorrow (my former alma mater). They have very competent computers and printers, plus, I have to study for my two exams on Tuesday! (You may want to start a prayer chain for me!) 😉
Thanks, and I love you all,
