    In the Spirit of Sankofa,




    ... The question and/or issue becomes this, why would not Gates, with all his money, invest in Hospitals and Health Care, rather than birth control devices. Keep in mind Family that TED provides a platform for Gates and all the other exploiters.

    NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — More than 1 million babies die the day they are born every year, and the 14 countries with the highest rates of first-day deaths are all in Africa, according to a new report released Tuesday.
    Somalia, Congo, Mali, Sierra Leone and Central African Republicare the five countries with the highest rates of such deaths, according to the report "Surviving the First Day" from the aid group Save the Children.

    "Health care for mothers in sub-Saharan Africa is woefully insufficient. On average, only half the women in the region receive skilled care during birth," the report said. "The region as a whole has only 11 doctors, nurses and midwives per 10,000 people, less than half the critical threshold of 23 generally considered necessary to deliver essential health services."

    Here we go again, because this takes me back to my petition. How many of us are doctors, lpn's, cpn's, rn's, have carpentry skills, agricultural skills, reading skills and so forth? This reminds me of part two of my write up on "The Process of Healing where I said.

    Obviously we have the skills, the knowledge, the money, the know how....everything but the LOVE!!!

    One more thing concerning Afraka that we need to be mindful of is its size. With the exception of South America and Russia, one can almost fit the whole world inside of Afraka with some room left over.

    Point made! And whether we see the end-game, our volitional movement to Alkebu-lan or not; know that this will happen, I'm confident.
