    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.

    They gave inspirational and challenging speeches, but no one mentioned divine guidance and no one asked for blessings on the graduates or their families.

    One 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 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 GOD BLESS YOU!!!

    This was taken from a
    True Story.

    I would have to say that was innovative and effective, it`s a shame we have to resort to these tactics over a simple blessing.
