A long, long time ago far away in China, a young emperor named Ping decided to hold a contest to find the wisest child in the land.  This child would become his prime minister and help rule over all of China.  He gathered all the children of the land together and told them that in one year's time, there would be a great parade and each of the children were to show him the greatest power in the world.  The children ran off to get started. Some decided that weapons were the greatest power.  Some felt it was science.  Others thought it was beauty.  What do you think it might be?
