We all have that one friend…
I’ve been that one friend. And let me tell you, it sucks in its own way. You come to dread the comparing of grades because you know it will make your friends angry and jealous, even though you can’t really help that you got a better grade than they did.
In some of my high school classes, the teacher would curve the test to the highest grade. So if the best score was, say 91%, that test would be counted as 100% and everyone else’s test scores would be curved based on that 91%. Which meant that before the test started, people would target “that one friend,” the one who always got good grades, and beg them to bomb the test so everyone else’s score would be better.
Doing well in school was rewarded by teachers but tremendously penalized by classmates. Even now, I have this association that success means people will hate me.

“I hate, I despise your festivals,
and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies.
Even though you offer me your burnt offerings and grain offerings,
I will not accept them;
and the offerings of well-being of your fatted animals
I will not look upon.
Take away from me the noise of your songs;
I will not listen to the melody of your harps.
But let justice roll down like waters,
and righteousness like an everflowing stream.”

Praying for the people of Kansas and the families and friends of those who were killed. And praying for all the Jewish communities in this country who feel a little less safe as they enter Pesach.
