Seven 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 was some
disagreement, the following got 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 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 full of silence you could have heard a pin drop.
Those things we overlook as simple and "ordinary"
are truly wondrous. A gentle reminder that the
most precious things in life cannot be bought
