I always admired the guy. Amired his honesty about his adversity. I read somewhere today that after his riding accident he seriously contemplated suicide and that over time his paralysis left him worn out, that it got harder, not easier to live with.

But he said something very interesting to me, and again, we can't compare suffering:

When he talked of suicide, he felt he had to keep living for his family, for his children. Rob said something like that in another post. I wish I had children and a family.

Reeve said: "I could see how much they needed me and wanted me ... and how lucky we all are and that my brain is on straight."


I don't know why I'm so miserably sad over this.

Five For Fighting
"It's not Easy to Be Me (Superman)"


"I can't stand to fly
I'm not that naive
I'm just out to find
The better part of me

I'm more than a bird
I'm more than a plane
More than some pretty face
Beside a train
And it's not easy to be me

Wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find some way to lie
About a home I'll never see

It may sound absurd
But don't be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed
But won't you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream
And it's not easy to be me

Up, up and away
Away from me
Well it's alright
You can all sleep sound tonight
I'm not crazy, or anything

I can't stand to fly
I'm not that naive
Men weren't meant to ride
With clouds between their knees

I'm only a man in a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite on this one-way street
I'm only a man in a phony red sheet
Looking for special things inside of me

Inside of me
Inside of me
Yeah, inside of me
Inside of me

I'm only a man in a phony red sheet
I'm only a man looking for a dream
I'm only a man in a phony red sheet
And it's not easy to be me"

I guess I thought he'd never die, or at least wouldn't die for a very long time.

I didn't particularly care for him as Superman on the screen.
His Superman role in real life touched me deeply, however.

Rest in peace. Superman.

For some reason when I saw last night that he died my heart just dropped. It was very unexpected. I never saw Superman the movie or if I did I don't remember it. But I kept up with him as a person. This was one celebrity death that hit me hard.
