The Classic Pamela Positive: Christopher Reeve’s Progression of Dreams

“At first dreams seem impossible, then improbable, then inevitable.”

– Christopher Reeve

What a lovely quote…and a good reminder for us all…

Christopher Reeve (1952-2004) was an American actor and activist.  As an actor, he is best known for his portrayal of Superman.  Reeve was married to Dana Morosini and had three children, two from a previous relationship.  In 1995, Reeve was injured in a horse-riding accident which shattered vertebrae in his spine and left him a quadriplegic.  He became an influential activist for individuals with spinal injuries, bringing attention to the cause through speaking and media, and founding the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.  Reeve inspired many with his personal story of persevering through his physical challenges.  He made his directorial debut after his injury, and also performed in small acting roles, including on the Superman-based TV show, Smallville.  He authored two autobiographical books after his injury, Still Me and Nothing Is Impossible.
