EJ's reaction to nature will melt your heart.

In EJ’s world, everything that appears green to most people instead appears brown to him. That was until his parents surprised him with special corrective glasses to allow him to experience nature for the first time in all its colorful glory.

Born with red-green color blindness, EJ had never experienced nature like this before. When he finally did, he said, “Everything’s pretty.”

You can watch his reaction in the video below.
