Colorblind Student Brought To Tears When Principal Brings Him Special Glasses To See Colors
November 23, 2019
A "severely colorblind" student became very emotional after his principal gave him special glasses that helped him to see colors for the first time in his life.
Ben Jones posted the video of his brother Jonathan to Twitter where it has been viewed more than 4 million times in just two days.
"My little brother is severely colorblind and so is his principle at school. While they were learning about colorblindness in class, his principle brought in some glasses that let him see color for the first time, and he was very emotional," Ben wrote on Twitter.

The emotional moment compelled the principal to give Jonathan a hug. He was also embraced by his mom, who was on hand to witness the first-time experience.
Jonathan's mother set up a GoFundMe to help purchase a pair of the expensive glasses for her son.
"After posting a video on social media of Jonathan seeing color for the first time, we have been overwhelmed by how many kind, generous people have wanted to help him get a pair of his own color blind glasses," she wrote on the fundraiser page. "We will use these funds to purchase his own pair and donate any additional funds to a foundation who purchases color blind glasses for those who can't afford them."
So far the campaign has raised more than $13,000. The goal was $350.
"The reaction Jonathan had when he saw the colors made me realize the things we all take for granted but how very important they are. God Bless Jonathan and his family. Thank you for sharing your wonderful moment," Kim DeSio commented on GoFundMe.
"I cried watching this video, it was happy tears watching him experience colour for the first time. I pray he gets these glasses and can have that for the rest of his life! Sending lots of blessings," Stephanie Dzierzecki wrote.
