Getting Through : In Remembrance

In Remembrance of Christopher Reeve

In remembrance of my hero.

I learned to read when I was 3, I could read the KJBible at 5, better than most of the other hippie cult members I lived with. In Italy and France I was brought up reading Mo Letter volumes 1,2 and 3, vs. the normal comic book and children's reading that kids had. I fed my childish desire for comics with the illustrations in those letters, The Goddesses, Flirty Fishing, Holy Holes, etc...

Fortunately my Mom believed in a rounder literary education, and purchased puffin classics for me: Moby Dick, Call of the Wild, Robin Hood, King Arthur are some of the ones I remember.

But my favorite was the long train rides to some unknown city for a road trip with my Dad, where he would spend a few hours telling me the tales of Superman. Superman became my hero, my childish escape from the adult life I was forced to live most of the time, my child's daydream to slip into.

Superman the Movie was naturally my all-time favorite, and Christopher Reeve as the embodiment of Superman my favorite actor for years and years. I think I've seen Superman at least 30 times, not even as many times as Star Wars. I watch the first 3 movies every few years, having a good laugh at the corniness, reminiscing over past memories, places I've lived, my upbringing.

When I heard about the passing of Christopher Reeve the other day I spent the day somewhat sad that my favorite hero of all time has died. I believe he was a good man who tried in his life to overcome his disabilities after his accident, and not to give up on living.

Rest in Peace

Maybe it's not nice to speak ill of the dead, but I always thought Mr Reeves was a fairly mediocre actor, who got more fame from his accident and subsequent "battle with paralysis" than he ever could have from his acting. The whole thing seemed like a lot of media hype to me. That being said, I appreciate the work he may have done to promote stem-cell research (I'm not getting confused with a South Park episode here, am I?) He also made a much better Superman than that pretty-boy Dean Cain.

Rest in peace, Reeves. And stay off the front page.

Christopher Reeves will surely be missed, as a kid he was definitely one of my heroes, and was the only character "approved" by the cult that wasn't in the bible or part of one of David's fantasy people that lived oh so long ago. It's too bad that he had such a debilitating injury. I hope his death does some good in forcing the American public to put reason over religion in the issue of stem cell research.
