:: "Congratulations and Praise be to God! You have all passed His
tests and now enter the world to carry on the work of the Lord! May each
and every one of you be ever thankful to God, for guiding you through these
last four years, albeit he offed about 14 of you in auto-accidents, cancer,
or drive-by shootings ...remember, He has a plan for THEM too!
Live for them, live for Jesus, and as some of you enter the Military, may
God be always on your side. (Of course if I were giving this prayer on
foreign territory I guess I'd have to switch my loyalties.)
Go ye forth, knowing that you have been chosen -unless any of you happen
to be Atheist, Jewish, Wiccan, Humanist, etc....

THERE!! Only 40 seconds. ... A "trivial link?"
Remember, all the camel needs is to get his nose under the tent.

(You might do better to stand by the tent.)
'Wonder if above 'prayer' would serve better if the gummint had it shaved
it down by leaving out the references to myths.
