Morris lost part of both arms and both of his legs when he stepped on a roadside bomb.
As he received a Bronze Star with Valor from the U.S. military, he said this about his girlfriend: "If I had hands, I'd take this Bronze Star and pin it on Danielle. It's been so hard and she's been here the whole time."

5 QUOTES THAT INSPIRE LOVE & AFFECTION
"Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies."
"Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead."
"A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous."
"Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable."
"For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul."
