The Seven Wonders of the World.


The Seven Wonders of the World

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:

1. To touch.
2. To taste.
3. To see.
4. To hear.
(She hesitated a little, and then added)
5. To feel.
6. To laugh.
7. 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 🙂
