The Seven Wonders
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 many." 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 about the most precious things in life.
