Hearing the news about Christopher Reeve was really disheartening. He was one of my real first movie heros and posters of Superman littered the walls of my boyhood bedroom. Reeve showed amazing courage after his accident and became a powerful advocate for stem-cell research. He was a Unitarian-Universalist and his faith grew with his experience of being disabled. Lots of people go the other direction and understandably loose their faith during such times. Make sure you visit his foundation web site to learn how you might support his work. John Kerry was also a friend of Reeve’s (he actually mentioned him during the last debate) and the senator has a good statement up on his web site about Superman’s passing.
