Another legend has enetered the final hall of fame, or in this case, quite possibly his own Hall of Justice. Maybe a Fortress of Solitude, though I hope not...

Christopher Reeve was a man, a super-man. Not only did this fine gentleman portray Superman, The Man of Steel, in film, but after his accident he lived the life of a super-man, fighting battles every day for the rest of his. In my generation's youth, we looked to Chris, as Superman, for hope, inspiration, and courage. Here was this man in the movies, flying around and saving the world, to make it better for us wee folk. Who cared it was all fictional? Name me one boy who was growing up who didn't pretend that he was Superman at least once in his life. I know I did it. Hell, I still wish I could fly most every day, a childish dream maybe, but a dream. Then the unthinkable happened.

During an equestrian competition, Chris and his horse chanced into an accident. His neck was broken; his body was paralyzed; our youth was destroyed. Superman became a vegetable?! It seemed that was the case. It was a very sad day indeed. He swore he would do his best to recover, and he became an inspiration for the world. Making public appearances and acting again here and there, we saw that while his body might have been broken, his spirit could have never been stronger. In the past year alone, he made more advances in his recovery than any other patient of his kind. He, to me, was branded a super-man beyond all boundaries. I felt that if given time, he would walk again.

I in no way could complain about my life whenever I thought of him. He was, in all honesty, an inspiration to me. This man was indeed making the world a better place for all of us, and not just on screen or stage. It was last night at work when I recieved the call for my very good friend Lucas. I said, hey man I am at work, what is up though? He then replied, 'Well I figured as much and therefore you havn't heard yet." Right there I was stunned in silence, who died, was there an attack, what? "Christopher Reeve is dead." We then had a quick discussion about it, then I had to go back to work. We actually announced this to the restraunt over the P.A. but no one really seemed to care.

It is a sad world we live in, do not even try to argue it. We looked towards modern day heroes, like Reeve, for the hope, inspiration, and courage we need. A hero has fallen, and there was no Doomsday that took him out. There will be no replacement for this man, and he will not come back to us. His legacy has been set in place, and he will never be forgotten, never. We need our heroes, but first we need to remember this fallen one. High flights, Chris. Fly high, and protect us from above,yon super-man.

This is something I have had for years and valued. The paper it was printed on is about to pass, so I figured I would save it here, and share it with all of you. Enjoy.

Rules for Being Human

1. You will recieve a body. You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period this time around.

2. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time information school called life. Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like lessons or think they are irrelevant or stupid.

3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial and error, of experimentation. The "failed" experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately works.

4. A lesson is repeated until learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can then go on to the next lesson.

5. Learning lessons does not end. There is no part of life that does not contain its lessons. If you are alive there are lessons to be learned.

6. "There" is no better than "here." When your "there" has become a "here" you will simply obtain another "there" that will again look better than "here."

7. Others are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.

8. What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.

9. Your answers lie inside you. The answers to life's questions lie inside of you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.

10. You will forget all this.

I realized after typing rule 10 that it has been so long since I have thought of this, that I in turn did follow that last rule. Maybe I can remember for awhile longer yet!
