Bruce Springsteen Signs Student's School Absence Note

Legendary rock musician Bruce Springsteen signed a youngster’s note for school, allowing them to miss class to attend his concert.

Everyone has obligations, requirements and duties that they must fulfill. It doesn’t matter who you are or what stage of your life; everyone has things they must do. No one enjoys having to do something or go somewhere, but that’s simply a part of life. Obligations are not much fun.

For adults, those obligations typically consist of going to work Monday through Friday, making sure the children get to school on time and putting food on the table every evening. It can be a grind, which is why everyone enjoys the weekends and any deviation from their schedule they can get.

However, adults are the only people who have things asked of them. Children have school, class assignments, practices and rehearsals. But sometimes, occasionally, it’s permissible to put these obligations and requirements aside. 

A clip posted on YouTube shows that one young lady who was missing school got her excuse note signed by none other than legendary musician Bruce Springsteen. 

The short video begins with Bruce holding the note up for the crowd to see. With pen in hand, he then takes a knee on the stage and signs the note for the child. He then hands the note back to the student and blows a kiss as he walks off the stage. 

The crowd cheers and shouts as the “Born in the USA” singer adds his signature to the paper. One person is heard saying, “Bruce, you’re awesome!”

Fox News reports that Bruce stopped and signed the note for the 11-year-old girl at the end of his March 31 concert in San Francisco. 

Something tells me that while the child’s note is for missing class, she probably won’t be turning that note in to her teacher. That’s a moment and a school note she will cherish for the rest of her life.

Ephesians 4:32 “And be kind to one another, full of pity, having forgiveness for one another, even as God in Christ had forgiveness for you.”
