So many of our dreams at first
seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the
will, they become inevitable. Christopher Reeve shows that we are all capable
of overcoming seemingly insurmountable hardships. He describes his own struggles
since his spinal cord injury that left him virtually paralized. Yet, says
Reeve, many able-bodied people choose paralysis - choosing
to live with self-doubt and the fear of taking risks. Life is not to be
taken for granted but to be lived fully with zeal, curiosity, and gratitude.
A powerful message of hope.
