The Seven Wonders of the World

Saturday, March 13, 2010

Junior high school students in Chicago were studying the Seven Wonders of the World. At the end of the lesson, the students were asked to list what they considered to be the Seven Wonders of the World.


Though there was some disagreement, the following received the most votes.

1. Egypt's Great Pyramids


2. The Taj Mahal in India


3. The Grand Canyon in Arizona


4. The Panama Canal


5. The Empire State Building


6. St. Peter's Basilica


7. China's Great Wall


While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student, a quiet girl, hadn't turned in her paper yet. So she asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list. The quiet 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;

to touch


to taste


to see


to hear


She hesitated a little, and then added;

to feel


to laugh


and to love


The room was so quiet, you could have heard a pin drop.


May this story serve as a gentle reminder to all of us that the things we overlook as simple and ordinary are often the most wonderful - and we don't have to travel anywhere special to experience them.

Enjoy your gifts!
