Imagine living through life without knowing or having the ability to see the beautiful colors around you. For the colorblind, that’s what it’s been like every single day of their life. Small things like this we can take for granted. The Tennessee Department of Tourism sponsored an event where they took 16 people with colorblind-less to Ober Gatlinburg, Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area, and the westbound Interstate 26 overlook near Erwin where these view finders were installed. The plan is to install these viewers at various locations across the state at a cost of $2,000 each. The three already installed will remain permanently.
Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountain is known for having the most spectacular scenery in the United States. During the autumn months is a time to capture the vivid colors of the mountains. This was the perfect time to unveil the viewfinders.
In the emotional video below you can see partipants reactions to their moment at first sight.
13 million americans suffer for colorblind. Moments like this take our breath away, the next time you look around we hope that you can see the beauty in the world that others can’t.
