VISION (MOUNT ST. HELENS, WA)
As the massive eruption on May 18, 1980 unfolded, David Johnston - a 30 year old volcanologist - had mere seconds to live.
This. This is the place of vision.
As the massive eruption on May 18, 1980, unfolded, David Johnston - a 30-year-old volcanologist - had mere seconds to live. He was camped on this ridge to observe and his final words were: "Vancouver! Vancouver! This is it!"
When you visit the observatory that bear's David's name, you will observe a hurting history, a healing present, and an unknown future. While here and reflecting, you are surrounded by an incredible and divergent atmosphere that includes beauty, scars, change, tragedy, healing, emotion, life, death, peace, hope, beginning, ending, dreams, and legacy.
Look back at that list of words one more time. Each and every one conjures imagery of vision. A vision may affect each person differently, but the common ground is that everyone will be touched by the vision.
For vision, it's not where you sit that matters most BUT what you see.
Yes, this is the place of vision.
