If there is a will...there's a way!!!

If they can do it in Maryland; they can repeat it everywhere....

Each of the ninety-two students walked in tandem 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.

This class was informed in advance they 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 rulling. 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.

After the last 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, every single one of them, suddenly SNEEZED!!!

The student on stage...simply looked at the audience and said, "God bless you, each and everyone 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.

This is a true story; it happened at the University of Maryland....true as this is...we can all pass this on to families who will be having a child graduating from whichever school they will be participating and maybe with a little encouragement it will be performed all over the country!!!

God Bless those Maryland students!!!
