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 paralyzed. Yet, says Reeve, many able-bodied people choose paralysis – choosing to live with self-doubt and the fear of taking risks.
