Even Superman is Human
Is it because he was Superman and Superman doesn't die?
Is it because 52 seems like such a vulnerable age to me considering Craig was 52 when he died?
Is it because I spent much of my late teens and early 20's amongst quadriplegics watching the daily trials of living and hoping one day they could recover some of what they lost and that Christopher Reeve, years later, was breaking barriers previously unbroken, and I wanted to see more?
Is it the song below, running through my head all day, a song I put on my strange songs
page, songs that gave me strange comfort when Craig died, just hitting hard?
Is it because something so seemingly benign as a simple pressure sore, which are never simple in reality, can't be treated effectively considering other miraculous medical advances?
Whatever it is, he gave us hope, and showed us that in the end even Superman doesn't get out of life alive.
