The story of Taylor Morris has been heard across eastern Iowa, but now the rest of the country is getting to know the Cedar Falls native.
Morris was an EOD Tech in the Navy, who lost portions of all four limbs after he was injured while serving in Afghanistan.
On Monday morning, Morris and his girlfriend Danielle Kelly appeared on the Today Show on NBC with Matt Lauer. Lauer brought the couple on to discuss photos of Morris and Kelly that have gone viral on the Internet.
In a post called "A love story in 22 pictures," on the website buzzfeed.com, the pictures show Morris and Kelly before and after the explosion that injured him in May. So far the 22 photos have had more than three million views.
"We never wanted to do all the interviews and all the cameras and everything like that, but we just started getting so many letters from different people about how much they were inspired. Them telling us what it has done for them personally and that has made us want to share our story," Morris told Today Show Anchor Matt Lauer.
Kelly shared how Morris has inspired other injured sailors and soldiers at Walter Reed Medical Center and a young boy who suffered a brain injury. She says that young boy sees Taylor as superman.
