The Story Behind the ‘Seven Wonders of the Modern World’ PowerPoint Presentation

A group of students were asked to list what they thought were the present
‘Seven Wonders of the World.’  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

After the Voting
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 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.
