Today Christopher Reeve died, age 52.
I can't describe how upset I was when I heard this.  He has been through so much.  He was paralyzed from the neck down for over ten years of his life... that kind of life would have just made me beg for death, but instead of giving up hope, he raised a lot of awareness for a terrible problem that affects thousands of people around the world, he vowed to walk again, and he did everything he possibly could have to help others who suffer like him.
Rest in peace, you truly deserve it.

May he rest in peace, along with the recently deceased Rodney Dangerfield and the many other good people who passed on before the people of the world were ready to part with them. He accomplished much good, and may he get great blessings for it.

I am sad that he died. He was a good Superman and an inspiration to us all. He was good in the Smallville episodes. May he rest in piece.

Bye bye Superman. I hope that where you go, not only can you walk again, but that you can fly again too! Here, a cookie. For you. *lays cookie down on his grave and walks away*

*runs back and starts belting the insects, birds and hobos that are trying to steal the cookie with a crowbar*

No, seriously, I dunno much about the guy but it's shit for someone to get paralyzed like that, and even shitter to die so young. =(
don't believe everything you read... especially if it comes from me.

As stated, may be rest in peace. IMHO, he still was the better superman.  ;)
As you love your own body, so regard everyone as equal to your own body. When the Supreme Experience supervenes, everyone's service is revealed as one's own service. Call it a bird, an insect, an animal or a man, call it by any name you please, one serves one's own Self in every one of them. ~ Ma

He was a great inspiration to me, and he taught me to live life to the fullest, no matter what happens to you. May his soul reach up to the heavens and join others like himself.

Sigh, always a dissapointment when such a driven man dies.  We lost one of the greatest thinkers on the planet as well - the man was brilliant.

Once more however, we see another life reach completion.
