ABSTRACT
The author compares the situation of his paraplegic brother to the case of the late actor Christopher Reeve, mostly known for his role as Superman. The superhero served as a special bond between the brothers. Due to a car accident, the author's brother became paralyzed and depressed. When Reeve discussed his prediction that one day he would overcome his paralysis, which was caused by a fall while horseback riding, the author felt hope that his brother would also get better.
