I remember driving to school with my mother, eyes wide. I thought, as we passed by buildings and stores and little cafes with seats outside, that the small suburban town we were driving through was beautiful.
And when I told my mom, she looked at me out of the corner of her eyes and told me:
“Did I ever tell you how Dad and I were going to move here?”
“Here?” I said. “No… I don’t think so.”
“We were looking at a house that we both liked, but when I asked the real estate agent about how I heard there was some anti-Semitism going around, you know what she said?”
“She said ‘is that a good thing, or a bad thing?’”
