Cassy and Alyssa Gaddis' "The Price of Peace" posterThe Price of Peace

Performed by Cassy and Alyssa Gaddis

Written by Alyssa Gaddis and Hart Steen
2008 Creative Caffeine Studio

The Price of Peace is a great song that has a message of love and support for any loved one in the military.

"I sat down one night and wrote it with my dad's help. I didn't realize my dad knew so much about it until he started telling me about the deployment ceremonies he has attended. He told me how the soldiers families and the children clutched their soldier's and cried unashamed. This really hit home for me. I know it has to be hard for any family to watch a loved one or a friend go off to war. It is hard to understand how they feel everyday as they wake up praying that their loved one is ok. When people listen to this song I hope it moves them to a better understanding of what a military family has to cope with. The song also tells how a family sticks together and realizes God has a reason and purpose for all things." Alyssa Gaddis, 7th Grade (2008)

The full story about "The Price of Peace"

The “Price of Peace” was written in early summer of 2008 by Alyssa Gaddis after a discussion she had with her father, CW5 Jim Gaddis. The discussion revolved around the large number of Soldiers that were deployed overseas while their families were left behind. Alyssa realized that it was probably as hard on the families as it was on the deployed Soldiers. Her dad gave her a pad of paper and told her to write down how she felt and the lyrics of The Price of Peace were born.

The family knew that the lyrics had merit so they enlisted the co-writing assistance of a Nashville writer, Hart Steen. Hart added the music and recorded a basic track to the lyrics. After a few discussions with some members of the IL Employee Support of the Guard and Reserves about the song, State Farm agreed to sponsor the recording. State Farm provided funding for the recording and production of the song.

The song was recorded in Nashville TN at Creative Caffeine Studio in late September. The production timeline was compressed to one day of studio time to minimize costs and to lessen the impacts of missing school for the girls.

The song is being distributed via the internet at both in digital and cd formats. Profits from the song will be donated to Family Readiness Groups and local VFWs for families in need.
