Have you noticed that if you mention God on Facebook you are erased? Friends of mine have been banished for it, so I typed in the lyrics to “God Bless America,” since I am also media, surprisingly I was not banned. The word God is suddenly taboo….why? I believe in God and I dare anyone to get me to think differently. Even as I am tying this my words keep changing. Seriously annoying.
I do not however believe in church, because I think it has sold out. There are many who use God’s name for their own agenda’s. The belief in God is personal, but it has been used to cause wars, strife and disconnection. God has never been about that. He is about unconditional love, acceptance and connection.
I was sent this story, which I share with you. Snoops has deemed it partly true, but then again it is owned by George Soros and meant to hide the truth. Several other sources have confirmed the truth of it. It is called simply “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 capes, 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 commencement, 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 eceived 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 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.
It happened May 20, 2001 during the commencement exercises at Washington Community High School in Washington, Illinois.
