Reid Blackburn was a photojournalists who perished at the eruption of Mt. St. Helens. While journalists look at his story and see a word of caution, I want to encourage people to look at him and see inspiration. It takes a certain type of courage to look danger in the eye for the chance that people might see what is really going on in the world. He is a wonderful example of what photojournalists and journalists in general go through for people to get the news. This blog is here to explain what happened at Mt. St. Helens, Reid Blackburn as a person, Reid Blackburn as a journalists, others who experienced what he experienced and how he is remembered today.
