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.

don't be too busy to pass this along...!

Hi Samrina. I read your comment on my blog. When I was your age I didn,t much care about politics either. It is no wonder that you don't understand much of the American political scene. I don't know much about Pakistan politics. It is nice of you to visit and if you want to just say hi, you are welcome to do so.
I visit your blog just about everyday.
I find your words comforting and wise. Even when you share your sadness.
Just because I don't comment does not mean I have not read it. After what you write, it is hard to add to it, because of it's completeness.

I will though comment on this one. Another Wonder is that you and I seperated by Culture and Great distance can communicate like gentle people we are meant to be and "connect".
Your Mother should be very proud of you. I'm sure your BaBa is.
Please never change. Continue to grow, but keep the gentleness.
