Inspiration Station: Meet Marine Sgt. Luis Hernandez

Ratliff teased the story on her Twitter account on Monday with this post:

Hernandez was told that after suffering devastating injuries in an IED explosion during a patrol in Afghanistan in April 2010 that his body would never be the same again. But as his mother says in the piece: "He's brave, he's amazing, and don't ever say no to him because he will prove you wrong." Check out his full story here:
