A mystery British Soldier called home from Afghanistan to tell his girlfriend that he loved her. He left a 90-second message pouring out his heart, telling her that it was bad where he was, but that he loved her, that he’d fight for her, protect her, and oh, by the way, would she marry him?
But he dialed the wrong number. And his girlfriend, Samantha, wasn’t on the other end of the line.
Dianne Potts got the message instead. “It was about half seven in the evening when I listened to my voicemail. From the way the young chap was talking it was clear he was a soldier. I could tell he was speaking from a phone booth, the line was quite crackly. I was shocked, and had to listen to it again before the message sunk in.”
She contacted the Daily Mail, who published the article, along with a YouTube recording of the message, with the hopes that someone would recognize the young man’s voice, his story, his girlfriend’s name. And get the message back to Miss Samantha, so she can give her soldier an answer.
This is going viral… I’ve read it in two places now. Seems like a lot of people are pulling for this couple. Pass the message on. You never know who you might know that might know someone else that might know someone else… remember that old shampoo commercial? “You tell your friend, who tells her friends, and they tell their friends, and they tell their friends…” and the pictures just kept multiplying.
Maybe we can do that for something a little more worthwhile than shampoo.
