    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 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 so quiet you could have heard a pin drop.

    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.
