Bless YOU!

They walked in tandem, each of the ninety-three students filing into
the already crowded auditorium.

With rich maroon gowns flowing and the traditional caps, they looked
almost as grown up as they felt.

Dads swallowed hard behind broad smiles, and moms freely brushed away

This class would not pray during the commencements ----- not by choice
but because of a recent court ruling prohibiting it.

The principal and several students were careful to stay within the
guidelines allowed by the ruling.

They gave inspirational and challenging speeches, but no one mentioned
divine guidance and no one asked for blessings on the graduates or
their families.

The speeches were nice, but they were routine.......until the final
speech received a standing ovation.
A solitary student walked proudly to the microphone.
He stood still and silent for just a moment, and then, it happened.
All 92 students, every single one of them, suddenly SNEEZED!!!!
The student on stage simply looked at the audience and said, "GOD BLESS
YOU," each and every one of you!" And he walked off stage...

The audience exploded into applause. The graduating class had found a
unique way to invoke God's blessing on their future with or without the
court's approval!
