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

1. Egypt’s Great Pyramids
2. Taji Mahal
3. Grand Canyon
4. Panama Canal
5. Empire State Building
6. St. Peter’s Basilica
7. China’s Great Wall

5. To Feel …
6. To Laugh …
7. And to Love.”
