We live in a world of color that we take for granted.  My husband, brother, son, grandson, and many other nephews, are all color blind.  Like twenty percent of the male population, they do not live in a world of color.  That’s not to say that they don’t see any color, they do. It’s just not as vivid I guess, and reds and greens look alike to them, as do blues and grays.  My daughter got my husband a pair of those en chroma sunglasses that allow colorblind people to see colors more accurately. At first, when he put them on, he didn’t think they did much.  Autumn brought out a Mcdonald’s sack to show him purple, and he was amazed.  I don’t think he has ever seen anything purple, and he realized that the ‘red’ patio umbrella  he bought me was green!  LOL He saw the redbud tree in the  He also saw my green eyes for the first time, they have appeared brown to him all these years.  He was so amazed at how beautiful and blue my daughter’s eyes are. I can’t wait for my grandson and son to try these things out.  Mike went for a drive to look around. This is a beautiful time of year for seeing colors for the first time.  I hope he sees a tulip tree! I encourage you all to look at the world around you and appreciate your ability to SEE it.
