KAMI hears a story from San Diego, California. It is about the love story of a couple who were in their 75 years together last year. 7 decades and 5 years! Can you imagine that!
Eileen Atkinson, daughter of the lovely couple, shared her parent's story on Facebook. Only a few of their acquaintances noticed that they’ve reached their 75th wedding anniversary.
She wanted to publicize this story but was ignored by 6 local news stations and the Union Tribune newspaper that she contacted.
She did not need the media for this. A simple Facebook post did it for her and more than 400,000 people contributed to this story going viral.
One of the comments under her post said, "I sure think that is wonderful. Husband and I will have been married 68 years come Feb. of '17. I thought THAT was a long time but you sure are way ahead of me. Congrats to this wonderful couple."
A lot more people commented their congratulations and some experienced the same thing. Unfortunately, they did not get acknowledged by the media as well.
