  Ms. EDDIE BERNICE JOHNSON of Texas. Mr. Speaker, I rise to honor and 
applaud the Women's Federation for World Peace, USA for their 
commitment to women and world peace. This extraordinary organization 
provides women with the opportunities to create peace around the world. 
Their remarkable work highlights and enhances the role of women in 
establishing a world without terror and violence.
  In these troubling times, the cries for peace on Earth are needed 
more than ever. Women's Federation for World Peace continues their 
fight by bringing women from all walks of life together to conquer a 
common goal. Their outstanding dedication and strong will to the 
enhancement of the world's women and peace will no doubt serve as a 
valuable component throughout the world.
  As women we must be persistent, vigilant, and a strong force to help 
rid the world of violence. Although change will not come from one 
group, gender, or political party, but from all who are interested in 
helping to create a better world. An organization as the Women's 
Federation of World Peace is just one illustration in helping to create 
a better world for all of us.
  Mr. Speaker, I want to personally thank the Women's Federation for 
World Peace for their dedication and commitment they have put forth. I 
truly admire this organization for improving the world's women and 
peace throughout the world.
