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,


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? Pass it on to all your  friends.........and


This is a true story; it  happened at Eastern Shore District High School   in Musquodoboit Harbour , Nova  Scotia.

I hope this goes around the  world!!!
