#14 Atlantic City by Bruce Springsteen

Life is a gamble. Forces beyond our control determine which side of the line we fall on – winners or losers. Sometimes there just seems to be nothing we can do to change our fate. When we’ve done our best and it is still not good enough, life can feel like a love that has grown cold.

Sometimes we are forced to make decisions and take chances that could ruin it all, but they seem to be our only hope. When it seems there’s no other way to breathe life back into a seemingly ill-fated existence, we are led down a path we would rather not choose if we were left with a choice. But believing that the possibility still exists for redemption and for a little piece of happiness, we take the chance. We roll the dice because there’s nothing left to lose.

  1. As Julius Caesar once said, "Alea iacta est," meaning "The die has been cast." He said this as his army was crossing the Rubicon River in 49 BC, triggering a year-long civil war. Great post! :D
