Navy Hero Who Lost His Limbs Dances With His Girlfriend -- Get Ready to Weep (VIDEO)

soldierHere is, hands down, the most touching, wonderful, amazing thing you will see all day (probably all week): A video of a quadruple amputee, who lost all of his limbs while serving our country in Afghanistan, dancing with his girlfriend at a friend's wedding.

Seriously, if this doesn't make your heart swell with pride and your eyes fill with tears, nothing will.

Before I get to the video, a little background information on this adorable couple. Taylor Morris, 23, is a Navy Explosive Ordinance Disposal tech from Iowa who was severely injured after he stepped on an IED. He lost both of his legs, his left arm from the bicep down, and his right hand. He's currently still recovering at Walter Reed, but he and his girlfriend Danielle Kelly returned to Iowa a few weeks ago -- coincidentally on the five-month anniversary of his accident -- to attend the wedding of their close friends. And there they danced.

Wow. I've watched this video three times now, and each time is just as profound as the last. Morris truly is a hero to our country -- and a pretty great dancer to boot.

How amazing is this?
