The Sneeze

by Steve Ray on June 14, 2005

They graduating class walked in to the crowded auditorium with rich maroon gowns flowing and their traditional caps.  They looked almost as grown up as they felt.
This class would not pray during the commencements — not by choice but because a court ruling prohibited it. The principal and several students were careful to stay within the guidelines of the ruling.
They gave inspirational and challenging speeches, but no one mentioned God and no one asked for blessings on the graduates or their families.
The speeches were nice, but they were routine……until, the final speech.
A solitary student walked proudly to the microphone. He stood still and silent for just a moment, and then, it happened. All 92 students SNEEZED — every single one of them!!
The student on stage simply looked at the audience and said," GOD BLESS YOU — EACH AND EVERY ONE!" And he walked off stage.
The audience exploded into applause. The graduating class found a unique way to invoke God's blessing on their future with or without the court's approval.
