    Church and State

    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.

    ---------------------------

    Not sure if it's true. Doesn't really matter to me. Just interesting that such creativity is needed in order to simply acknowledge God in a small way even though the dollars used for tuition say "In God We Trust" on them.

    My guess is fake. If this really happened, why is the name of the school not mentioned?
