 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'

    And he walked  off the 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? 
 
     GOD BLESS    YOU!!!!
This is a true story; it happened at Eastern Shore District High School
in Musquodoboit  Harbour, Nova Scotia, Canada
