A little "english to spanish" translation help please...

Could someone who speaks spanish please translate these phrases to english for me?

"… and remember kids, you make freedom ring!"

"Pedro reports from the street."

"Wonderful people we are."

".... y recuerden ninos, ustedes hacen resaltar la libertad? - not sure about this. what does freedom ring mean?

"Pedro reportando desde la calle." or "Pedro reportando desde la calle" or "Pedro se reporta desde la calle" - it all depends on the context is being said.

"Let Freedom Ring" is a phrase taken from the idea that a bell sounds out loud for all to hear. Letting Freedom Ring is sounding out that we are free (sort of like the Liberty Bell).

The context of this is that Pedro is a reporter interviewing people on the street.

The Spanish translation I used in my previous post works for both phrases then.

".... y recuerden ninos, ustedes hacen resaltar la libertad"

"Pedro reportando desde la calle."

I think we need proof that Palaver actually speaks Spanish before we can accept this answer.

Re: A little "english to spanish" translation help please...

Today, I was going to have sex with my hispanic boyfriend. I wanted to turn him on, so I asked my friend how to say "fuck me" in Spanish. She claimed it was "pollo frito". I then proceeded to have sex, constantly screaming pollo frito for an hour. I later realized I was screaming "fried chicken." FML
