7 Wonders of the World
A group of students were asked to list what they
thought were the present "Seven Wonders of the
World." Though there were some disagreements,
the following received the most votes:
1. Egypt's Great Pyramids
2. Taj Mahal
3. Grand Canyon
4. Panama Canal
5. Empire State Building
6. St. Peter's Basilica
7. China's Great Wall
While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that
one quiet student hadn't turned in her paper yet.
So she asked the girl if she was having trouble
with her list.
The girl replied, "Yes, a little. I couldn't
quite make up my mind because there were so
The teacher said, "Well, tell us what you have,
and maybe we can help."
The girl hesitated, then read, "I think the
'Seven Wonders of the World' are:
1. to see
2. to hear
3. to touch
4. to taste
5. to feel
6. to laugh
7. and to love.
The room was so quiet you could have heard a
pin drop. The things we overlook as simple,
ordinary take for granted are truly wondrous!
A gentle reminder - that the most precious
things in life cannot be built by hand or
bought by man.
