Words of Wisdom from a True Hero
Introduction by Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway
Although he never planned it that way, Christopher Reeve became a hero for our time. His legacy of determination, commitment, compassion and courage continues to inspire men and women across the globe.
Playing the role of Superman in the movies he became, to many of us, “The Man of Steel.” When a riding accident changed his life forever, we cried and we worried… but somehow knew the super man within would prevail. And he did.
The way he lived, and the amazing way he spoke about living, became a powerful source of motivation and inspiration for people living with paralysis and disabilities. His words have touched all our hearts. We share some of our favorite Christopher Reeve quotes.
The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation continues to carry out a two-fold mission: Care and Cure. It is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information, and advocacy.
