“Tessie, do you still think there is a utopia in my heart?” she asked.
“Yes, Alicia, I do. Just because the world isn’t a utopia, does not mean that your heart cannot be one.”
“The world is far from perfect, I don’t understand how my heart is a utopia,” Alicia wondered.
“Believe in yourself. The river is a sign from God, but you have to believe it.”
“I believe it with my whole heart, mind, and soul!” Alicia shouted to God.
“Is it okay with you that the world isn’t perfect?” Tessie asked.
“Yes, I’m okay with my heart being perfect, and not the world.” Alicia hugged her friend, and never forgot the wisdom of Mrs. Robinson.
When Alicia went at home at night, she realized that the world isn’t what you think it is, but what it is meant to be.
She prayed for Mrs. Robinson and that someday there would be no discrimination in the world ever again. She remembered that whenever she began to doubt her utopia again, and it stayed with her forever. Alicia remained friends with Tessie, and began to realize that not all white people hate blacks. She also began to believe in herself more, and not to judge people. Alicia continued to go to Lakeview Elementary with Tessie, and realized that friends can help you get out of problems, but you still have to believe in yourself.
