REST IN PEACE, CHRISTOPHER REEVE


Silmarill woke us up at 4:00 a.m. this morning to tell us that Christopher Reeve had passed away. He was a wonderful actor, by all accounts a terrific husband and loyal friend, and a powerful advocate for stem cell and spinal cord research. It has been painful these past years to watch his ordeal but inspiring as well to witness his courage and hopefulness. May he rest in peace. Our prayers are with his family and friends.

I noticed that John Kerry said of him in the debate Friday night, "he was my friend." At first I thought it was a gaffe, since Reeve was still reportedly alive. Now I wonder if it wasn't a moment of prescience.
