Look Up and Look Out for Madeleine
27th January, 2010. Symbolic flight of lanterns.
Update from the official site http://www.findmadeleine.com/
Wednesday 27th January 2010
Today marks 1000 days since Madeleine was taken from us. It’s hard to even say the number. We remember the first few days after Madeleine was taken, watching the clock and counting every hour. Now we’ve reached 1000 days.
It’s difficult sometimes to understand how we’ve been able to keep going and survive without Madeleine, especially since nothing has changed since that terrifying first night. Madeleine is still missing. Sometimes it even feels ‘wrong’ to be coping. And yet if we weren’t, there would be no search and no campaign to find Madeleine and that just doesn’t bear thinking about! We are very aware though that our ability to cope and keep going for Madeleine has been greatly augmented by the incredible support we have received from so many people and this should never be underestimated. We will always remember and be forever grateful for this help, support and kindness.
This evening we will be holding a fund-raising event in London – ‘Still Missing,Still Missed; An Evening for Madeleine’. We will be remembering Madeleine and other missing children throughout the world. We are hoping to raise a good amount of money to further the search for Madeleine but also to benefit the charities, Missing People and Missing Children Europe and the fantastic but often unrecognised work that they do on behalf of all missing children in the UK and Europe.
Also this evening, 1000 lanterns will be released into the night sky – an event which has been called ‘Look Up & Look Out for Madeleine’.They will be released from many different locations in the UK, Portugal and the USA. It is a symbolic way for our family, friends and supporters to show that we have not forgotten Madeleine and will never give up on her.
In addition to the above, Simon Armitage has very kindly(and courageously) written a poem for Madeleine to coincide with the 1000th day since her disappearance. It is called ‘The Beacon’. We think it is an incredible and really beautiful sonnet. It manages to convey so accurately and succinctly, both our darker moments and the reality of hope and possibility, aswell as including powerful and touching references to Madeleine. We hope it will be read by many.
One thousand days.
Madeleine is still missing and she needs to be found.
We will continue to turn every stone. We will never give upon Madeleine.
Thank you for your support and solidarity. Together we can bring Madeleine home.
