Christopher Reeve Lived in Courage

I was thinking of Christopher Reeve’s today. What a powerful peaceful soul. A Role Model. My birthday is this month. I was born the same year as Christopher in 1952. As many of you know, he passed on October 10th 2004. He would be 56 this year. He is greatly missed around the world.

I am so grateful for my life. Each year that passes brings more joy, with life unfolding in the most miraculous ways. Superman could fly and sometimes I feel as if I can too. Christopher Reeve’s knew how to fly in the face of fear, with great courage. Few people have the strength to live with such grace in the appearance of such a challenge. There is no doubt that some days were much harder to face than others, but he rose to the occasion, setting himself as a example to the world. To live in freedom, no matter what seems to be an obstacle is a gift of courage we each own. Thank you Christopher and your family for being such an inspiration to all of us. May we all follow your lead and live in COURAGE.
