Group seeks your graduation horror stories

HSgrad High school graduation time is fast upon us, and it should be a time for seniors across Florida to celebrate.

That's all seniors, the Americans United for the Separation of Church and State stresses in its latest missive:

"All students should feel welcome at their graduation. It is a time to celebrate each student's accomplishments, regardless of their religious beliefs. Unfortunately, there are always some school districts that violate church-state separation in their graduation ceremonies."

Know of any "improper" public school graduation ceremonies coming up? AU wants to hear about them. Be sure to send all the details about the school so they can follow up. And enjoy commencement.
