Welcome back, I’m off to Italy myself in a week or so.
Glad your back. I really enjoy reading your blog. Hope you had a great time.
Welcome back, Khoi.
I saw Superman in New Delhi, I think, on my first trip to India back when I was in third grade. I remember it vividly–the theater was a cavernous and ornate British theater complete with balcony and chandelier, and an usher showed us to our seats. And the woman sitting in front of me translated the entire undubbed movie into Hindi for her son.
RIP Mr. Reeves.
Thanks folks. I’m still getting used to being back again, and I haven’t quite found the energy to resume blogging regularly, what with all the catching up I’m trying to do at work. But soon…
As an avid rider and a graduate of the same college that graduated Dana Morosini Reeve one year earlier, I’ve followed Christopher Reeve’s story with great personal interest, and I too was very much saddened by the news. But think about it this way: His fall could have happened to anyone in the competition on that summer day, and if it had been anyone else, it would have been nothing more than a terrible, tragic accident. He nearly died then, but he didn’t, and in the nine years that followed, he used his fame and resources to promote awareness and progress that otherwise might never have happened. He set an example of courage and grace, gave hope to so many who desperately need it, and made us all rethink our definition of a hero. They say everything happens for a reason, and though it’s often hard in the face of tragedy to imagine what that reason might be, in the case of Christopher Reeve, it couldn’t be more clear. He is gone now and we’ll miss him, but I hope that somewhere, he is free.
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
