This Is The Incredibly Powerful Story Of A Wounded Warrior And His Angel.
By: Joseph Simonds on November 11, 2015
Just imagine waking up one morning and no longer having your arms or legs…
I realize that it isn’t a pleasant thought…
Yet, this is exactly what happened with a hero by the name of Taylor Morris…
Before I get into this powerful, awe-inspiring, and tear-jerking story, let me address a question that has come up from many of you in regards to “WHY” Luke and I sold our company (and are risking it all) to follow our dreams with Salt Strong.
WHY are we risking it all to build Salt Strong?
- Because we believe this is what we were called to do
- Because of brave warriors like Taylor below, we know that anything is possible if you have courage and faith
- Because of brave warriors like Taylor below, we know that a determined mind is capable of anything
- Because of brave warriors like Taylor below, we live in a free country where we can start a business without much hassle, where we can shout out to the rooftops what we believe in, and we can live and work safely, while our brave warriors risk it all and fight our battles across the globe
This is for everyone that has ever served in the Military.
We can’t thank all the veterans and active military that protect our freedom.
And our “WHY” can be clearly answered in the pictures below…
United We Stand.
Thank you Taylor and Danielle Morris.
(the following was an email that was forwarded to me by my dad quite some time ago. I have not been able to get it off of my mind since, and now it is my time to share with as many people as possible. Focus on the guy and the girl in this first picture. It’s them throughout the series below…)
If you made it through this entire blog and don’t feel moved, emotional, and damn proud of our military fighting and sacrificing all they have for your freedom and protection, then it’s time to find a new country.
Thank you again to all of the men and women that have served and are currently serving our amazing America.
Happy Veterans Day.
Do you have a loved one in the military now, or a loved one that has served our country in that past that you want to give a shout out to, tell them you love them, or just to give them thanks publicly, simply post below in the comments.
P.S. – A big thanks again to Tim Dodd for documenting this so well. I never would have known any of the backstory had your name not been on some of the pictures in the email forward that I received. I highly encourage you all to check out Todd’s blog where the entire Taylor and Danielle story here.
P.P.S. – To Danielle the Angel. May we all be so fortunate as to have someone as loving and heroic as you in our lives.
