IMAGE5This is a photo journey of one man and his girlfriend, a story of courage that is humbling to witness. An amazing series of photos of a man who never stops smiling, in spite of all he loses...

Taylor Morris, 23, from Cedar Falls, Iowa, was a Navy explosive ordinance device technician. In January of 2012, Morris was deployed on his first tour to Afghanistan, set to return August 2012.

On May 3, 2012, Morris stepped on an IED: “I remember landing on the ground and looking over my body and I knew exactly what had happened.” He had lost both of his legs, his left arm and his right hand.

Incredibly, Morris maintained consciousness, and was able to warn his team of the danger. For that, the quadruple amputee hero was awarded the Bronze Star.

With the love of his high school sweetheart Danielle Kelly, Morris is making an amazing recovery.

If these pictures don't personify the idea of unstoppable, I don’t know what could and if he is a hero, then his girlfriend is an angel. 

Mahalo to the photographer Tim Dodd for his contribution in helping to share this couples inspirational story of strength and love.
