The Real Seven Wonders of the World

Post  Johntheservant on Sun 21 Dec 2008, 3:28 pm

[justify]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. Taj Mahal
  2. Egypt's Great Pyramids
  3. Grand Canyon
  4. Empire State Building
  5. St. Peter's Basilica
  6. Great Wall of China


While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student had not finished 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 pin drop silence. The things we overlook as simple and ordinary and that we 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.

Let us spread the Great Wonders on this Christmas Day.
