Facing blindness, 9-year-old boy pursues bucket list

Ben Pierce, 9, is going blind and there are a few things he wants to see before he can’t see.

You know how this works, right? His story makes it to the Internet, as his did a few weeks ago…

…and the world steps forward to help. He recently checked off “See Statue of Liberty,” but “See the Northern Lights” seemed like a lost cause, especially since he lives in Texas.

Now, he’s preparing to check “See the Northern Lights” off, too.

Good job, world.
