Chapter 26 – Thank You Maddie

(this chapter is fully translated)

You represented to Portugal and to the world so much more than you can ever imagine. You entered the lives and the daily existence of millions, albeit for the worst of reasons. You did it for the worst of reasons. You definitely were and still are important to many of us, all over this world. It’s a pity that for the world to wake up, you had to be taken away from our midst, just like it happened to Joana Cipriano Guerreiro.

The truth is, “Madeleine McCann”, a name that was repeated until exhaustion all over the planet, will be something that we will still remember in many years. At some point, the world’s spotlights turned on your parents and it seems that everyone has forgotten you, that your name is merely being used as an excuse for the names “Kate and Gerry” to be said. From a certain moment onwards, you were passed onto a secondary plane, when that which you had suffered or might have felt, that, indeed, was the most important thing.

Maybe you even were turbulent and a ‘know-it-all’. So what? That is precisely the attitude that the world needs. Common knowledge does not tell us that those who truly changed the course of History, spent their childhood in the uttermost tranquility. They revealed that same state of turbulence, of curiosity and stubbornness, since their early days. Those are the ones that we need, at least here in our little corner of the world, I can guarantee you that. People who will question things, and therefore, will move them forward, changing, inventing and creating.

We know you only from a photograph or through some videos, it’s true, but we were all left with the desire to meet you personally. Some look at your photos and say that there was a sad girl, others say you were the happiest child in the world. Truth is, there was simply a child that could and should have seen more colors beyond the black that she came here to find.

Madeleine, or Maddie, as some call you, will always be synonym of someone who disappeared on an early evening in May 2007, in a tourist resort in a region of this sunny country. But that is not all. Millions of texts were written in your name. Thousands of hours on tv were occupied, all over the world, by your face. Posts and people that you never even heard of, were questioned.

You prompted the parents of other children, who had been taken away from their loved ones, to learn how to show their suffering to the media. Heads of government have spoken only because you disappeared. Thousands have cried and prayed for you. There were adults who lost their faith in life, and others united over you. You were so much more than important.

You know, Madeleine, many of those people who work as policemen, did everything they could to solve the mystery of your disappearance, and to bring you back to the coziness of your bed. Then they continued, never stopping, to do everything they could to clarify what had happened to you. Hundreds of men and women dedicated themselves to trying to understand what had been your destiny. They never looked at their meager salaries or at their non-existent overtime payments. They gave up time with their families and with their “Madeleines” to search for you, to try to understand what might have happened to you.

If you’d ask them today if they would do it all over again, whether there was a microscopic chance of returning you into your bed or not, I assure you that all of them would respond to the calling again, and get back to work. Come rain or sunshine, against whomever they might have to go, they would do it all over again.

Just for the fact that you are a child, innocent, small and helpless, they would go into all the deserts of Morocco to search for you. They would lift the world’s carpet to see if you where underneath it.

These people are not always perfect in everything they do, but I can guarantee you one thing: they are committed, they are stubborn, and they also don’t like losing one bit, especially when children like you are at stake. That is when they dedicate themselves even more to the services that other men assign them to. Not only because of the justice of men, but essentially because of the justice that your name deserves. They did everything they could so you could laugh at the end. So you were not gone in vain. You certainly aren’t.

Only for the fact that you confronted us with the worst and the best in so many of us, and also because you did it without ever saying a single word, you were a heavy stone that hit the standing waters of our national feeling. For all this, we thank you, Miss Madeleine Beth McCann.

Thank you!
