    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
