    A group of students was asked to list what they thought were the present Seven Wonders of the Though there were some disagreements, the following received the most votes:

    1. Egypt's Great Pyramids World.

    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 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."

    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, ordinary & take for granted are truly wondrous!

    A gentle reminder that the most precious things in life cannot be bought.

    Have a Great Day!

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
