Christopher Reeve, Superman

Nothing of any consequence happens unless people get behind an idea. It begins with an individual and they share the idea with more individuals…and eventually it becomes a movement.
                                         Christopher Reeve

 Christopher Reeve became well known as the powerful Superman,maybe a modern,nicer type of extraterrestrial being (nevertheless,still extraterrestrial even thiugh not the E.T. type) that lived on Earth under the alias of Clark Kent,a young journalist. Just like in the film besides being a great American actor,film director, producer,screenwriter, author and activist,Christopher Reeve used to be a real Super Man. That’s why we want to add him on our list of Role Models.

After he suffered an accident in Virginia-he was thrown from a horse in an equestrian competition, he required a wheelchair and breathing apparatus for the rest of his life. But that wasn’t a reason to give up. He didn’t stop fighting FOR his own destiny and he founded the Christopher Reeve Foundation which is” a charitable organization headquartered in Short Hills, New Jersey and dedicated to finding treatments and cures for paralysis caused by spinal cord injury and other neurological disorders. It also works to improve the quality of life for people living with disabilities.”
During his entire life he was inspired by other people with disabilities that he met, and he spoke a lot about them and their problems. He also narrated the film “Without Pity: A Film About Abilities”. He supported all the people with disabilities especially when he wrote his book, “Still Me“, in which he writes about his experiences as an actor and about his horseback riding accident which resulted in his quadriplegia and its effects on his life.
Christopher Reeve was a very good actor that had to play the difficult role that life cast him. Acting isn’t only about transforming into other persons, it is about succeeding to play the role you have, till the end of the story.
