This photo of a Marine named Jesse Cottle has went absolutely viral… but not for a reason you would easily think of. Jesse lost his legs to an IED in Afghanistan in 2009. Because he can’t walk without prosthetics, his wife Kelly quite often will carry him where his new legs won’t allow. That’s why they posed for this photo with him on her back; it’s what they normally do.
But when the photographer uploaded the picture to her business Facebook page, it went viral. It made its rounds around the internet, with everyone identifying with its truth and beauty:
Jesse and Kelly are happily married, and she supports him every step of the way.
Love is important in their lives…
Not his legs.
