We Miss You, Madeline

 

A few years ago, moments after we we heard the shocking news that Arakawa had passed away, Madeline called to assuage our anxiety. “We must keep going,” she said. "We must be strong. Arakawa is our reversible destiny hero." Now that Madeline is gone, we keep waiting for the phone to ring. We miss her intoxicating, death-defying courage. The universe just isn't the same. Yet, we can still hear the strength and resolve in her voice and in her words: just because it's always been this way, doesn't mean that it will always be this way. We miss you, Madeline. You gave the world the confidence to believe in itself.
