"If an Arab and a Jew can look at one another and see the Akashic lineage and see the one family, there is hope. If they can see that their differences no longer require that they kill one another, then there is a beginning of a change in history. And that's what is happening now. All of humanity, no matter what the spiritual belief, has been guilty of falling into the historic trap of separating instead of unifying. Now it's starting to change. There's a shift happening."

“ … Here is another one. A change in what Human nature will allow for government. "Careful, Kryon, don't talk about politics. You'll get in trouble." I won't get in trouble. I'm going to tell you to watch for leadership that cares about you. "You mean politics is going to change?" It already has. It's beginning. Watch for it. You're going to see a total phase-out of old energy dictatorships eventually. The potential is that you're going to see that before 2013.

They're going to fall over, you know, because the energy of the population will not sustain an old energy leader ..."

Africa bids farewell to Ghana's late leader

Deutsche Welle, 10 Aug 2012

Ghana's late president John Atta Mills is being laid to rest in a service attended by international dignitaries and African leaders. Mills died suddenly in July, reportedly with throat cancer.

Mills' death on July 24 came five months ahead of a planned bid for re-election. He came to power in 2008 and was credited with helping build Ghana's oil wealth in a transparent way.

His burial on Friday will end a three-day funeral in the capital Accra, but around the country, districts and groups have held their own services to bid farewell to the popular 68-year-old. 

John Dramani Mahama was named
as Ghana's new president
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is finishing an 11-day tour of Africa, was due to attend the main service. Liberia's Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Senagal's Macky Sall and Togolese President Faure Gnassingbe are also expected to attend the ceremony.

"He was like a brother to me. I will surely miss him," Gnassingbe said.

Tens of thousands of people were expected to gather in central Accra's Independence Square for the service, and around the city giant screens were installed at key points.

Thousands filed past Mills' open casket on Wednesday and Thursday, as his body lay in state at the government's State House.

Mills was widely known in the country of 25 million people as the so-called 'prince of peace' for his dedication to human rights.

He died suddenly after reportedly battling throat cancer, which he did not disclose to his supporters. Ghana's new president has been named as John Dramani Mahama, a former historian and journalist, who is expected to stand for election in the place of Mills.
