My Concern

usie and I are walking down the center of a street and she is singing in a gorgeous voice, a beautiful Jewish prayer. I see a group of people up ahead celebrating a wedding. I am a little concerned about walking past them because Susie has a flag draped across her back which is of a Jewish star in brilliant shades of blues.  I hope they’re not anti-Semitic. We keep walking and everyone we pass is very friendly and respectful. It turns out that one of their celebrations is not a wedding but a Bar Mitzvah.
