Christopher Reeve
September 25, 1952 - October 10, 2004

Though a character of fiction
Who could see through walls and fly
The actor who portrayed him
Has made the whole world cry.

Although he couldn’t move himself
He has changed this Earth around
Giving hope and keeping his
That some cures could be found.

He couldn’t hurdle over buildings
But could roll into your heart
And he knew that helping others
Was the best place to start.

He built a strong Foundation
Using the power of his name
Fighting for stem cell research
That "some people" think a "game".

But, maybe some day very soon
His dreams and wishes will come true
And then we’ll see and believe
What one "Superman" can do.

So many of our dreams
at first seem impossible,
then they seem improbable,
and then, when we summon the will,
they soon become

"A hero is an ordinary individual who finds strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles."
~Christopher Reeve~

"What makes Superman a hero
is not that he has power,
but that he has the wisdom and the maturity
to use the power wisely."
~Christopher Reeve~
