He Believed

Christopher Reeve had every reason to give up hope on his condition after the 1995 horse riding tragedy. Instead, he wanted desperately to prove the odds were wrong, and held out in a heroic manner the instinct that he would walk among us again.

Sadly, reality overruled his instincts. It'd be safe to say that the discussion on stem cell research will be kicked up a few notches because of his passing - as it would be to say that Reeve would not have a problem with that at all.
