Quotes from Freda

"I got on board with this project so that I can help to encourage others to follow in the steps of finding world peace from every place that I travel in giving direction to those who are lost."

“This project is really important, as it helps to send the message out there that there is always a better way,” 

“The impact of this timeless song will be tremendous and I am sure that this song will have a greater effect than ‘We Are The World’ had in the 80’s.”

"Peace has always been a significant factor in my life, and something that I will always be trying to achieve."

Peace is a means of re-establishing friendly relations with our neighbors to become reconciled.

It is freedom from disturbance, dispute or dissension between individuals, groups and countries.
