Real TN Stories: Colorblindless Viewers

Monday, March 05, 2018 | 11:00am

I just wish I'd seen this all my life, kind of like what I'd imagine the difference between here and heaven.

Tennessee has some of the most beautiful fall colors in the world, but 13 million Americans can't see them. TDTD installed special lenses in scenic viewers so people with color blindness could experience true colors of fall for the first time. Capturing their emotional reactions highlights the reason we are dedicated to #servingTN.

Real TN Stories is a social media campaign focused on telling the true stories of Tennesseans who provide critical, often overlooked, public services to their fellow citizens. The campaign is fundamentally a collaborative effort, coordinated by the Governor's Office and extending across state government during the week of March 5, 2018. By uniting the diverse work of Tennessee State Government under a common theme, Real TN Stories will shine a bright light on how state government positively impacts the average Tennessean in both ordinary and extraordinary ways every single day by #servingTN.
