People often ask me
You're Jewish?
Yes, why is that so hard to believe?
Is it because..
I don't have a big nose?
Or perhaps it's the accent?
Is it because I am Mexican?
To be Jewish does not require much..
To be Jewish only requires for you to believe.
To believe in the power of prayer,
in the power of kindness,
the blessing of family and friends,
belief in the true potential of mankind,
and to believe in the power of God.
I am Jewish at heart..
Even if my physiognamy,
my last name, or
the world tell me otherwise.
