Dana Reeve died of lung cancer last night.

This is a family who have suffered far more than their share.

In looking for a silver lining, one might say something like “at least now they’re together”, but I don’t know any parents anywhere who would choose to leave their only child, not yet grown, behind. No matter how wealthy the child may be.

Their work through the Christopher Reeve Foundation has touched many lives, and their example has given strength and inspiration to disabled people everywhere.

Sometimes bad things happen to good people.

Life is both random, and horribly unfair.

There’s a bit more of that “perspective” I was talking about this morning.

If you need me, I’ll be in my corner, counting and recounting my blessings.
