The Sneeze

  • The Sneeze

    They walked in tandem, each of the ninety-two
    students filing into the already crowded auditorium.
    With their 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 tears.
    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. This
    graduating class had found a unique way to
    invoke God's blessing on their future with
    or without the court's approval.
    Isn't this a wonderful story? Pass it on to
    all your friends..........and
    This is a true story; it happened at
    the University of Maryland .
    I wish THIS one would take off and FILL
    the whole Country!!!
