Boy, 9, fulfils wish to see Northern Lights before going blind” @ CBC News

A nine-year-old boy from Dallas, Texas, visited Alaska recently where he fulfilled one of his wishes of things to see before he loses his vision completely.

I have no doubt that Ben Pierce will always remember seeing the Aurora Borealis. I saw the Lights around the same age as Ben, though only from a 747 flying above Alaska, but even from my tiny window that heavenly sight remains memorable decades on. It is a light that burns eternal and never goes out.
