Veteran and quadruple amputee Taylor Morris is unstoppable
Morris lost parts of all four limbs in an IED attack while serving in Afghanistan. This is his inspirational story.
In YouTube Right Now, the Daily Dot looks at videos that catch our eyes, push our buttons, and move our dials—and that you’ve just got to watch. Right now!
The inspiring story of injured veteran Taylor Morris is a sure-fire way to put whatever problems you might have into perspective.
Morris, who served as a Navy Explosives Ordinance Disposal technician in Afghanistan, lost both of his legs, his left arm from the bicep down, and his right hand after coming across an undetected improvised explosive device (IED) on May 3, 2012. Since then, the 24-year-old has been rehabilitating at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.
A new video— entitled “Unstoppable: A Quad Amputee Story”— chronicles Morris’s tough but inspiring journey from hospital bed to partaking in the 2012 edition of the Tunnel to Towers charity run in New York City. Throughout the clip, Morris is accompanied by his devoted girlfriend, Danielle.
This isn’t the first time the veteran’s story has caught the Internet’s attention. About a month ago, BuzzFeed user TxBlackLabel submitted a post entitled “A Love Story in 22 Pictures” that introduced the heartwarming couple.
