Years ago as a high school student I was driving to school and Bruce Springsteen came on the radio. Except he wasn’t singing. He was answering questions from a local radio host.
At some point in the interview, Springsteen shared an uncanny observation about parents, paraphrased as best as I can I recall:
The best way I know how to honor your parents is to take all their good attributes and incorporate them into who you are, and leave behind all the bad ones.
That observation has stuck with me for more than 20 years.
No one knows how to Boss like the Boss himself, Springsteen.
