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."
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
The girl hesitated, then read, "I think the Seven
Wonders of the World are:"
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.
