We, the Undersigned, endorse the following petition:

Stem cells are "blank" cells that have the potential to develop into any type of cell in the body -- nerve cells, heart cells, kidney cells. This gives scientists hope that stem cells could one day treat diseases such as Alzheimer's, diabetes, cancer, Parkinson's, and heart disease.
Last May the House of Representatives passed legislation to expand stem cell research. Senate Republican Leader Bill Frist - Doctor Frist - refuses to hold a vote in the Senate, caving instead to the religious right.

This is a rare opportunity for Congress to significantly improve the quality of peoples lives.

It's time for Senator Frist to stop playing politics with our health, and hold a vote on stem cell research. Please demand a vote today!

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Army Surgeon General is warning that the HBO documentary "Baghdad ER" is so graphic that military personnel watching it could experience symptoms of post-traumatic stress.

In a memo dated May 9 and obtained by CNN, Lt. Gen. Kevin Kiley says the film "shows the ravages and anguish of war."

"Those who view this documentary may experience many emotions," he said in the memo. "If they have been stationed in Iraq, they may re-experience some symptoms of post-traumatic stress, such as flashbacks or nightmares." (Watch what made a bloodied soldier plead for his life in Baghdad -- 3:33)

HBO is releasing the documentary on the operation of the 86th Combat Support Hospital in Ibn Sina, Iraq.

The film will premiere Monday at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History in Washington, as well as on 22 Army posts.

It airs Sunday on HBO -- a division of Time Warner, the parent company of CNN -- and will replay on Memorial Day.

Kiley, who has watched the film with senior Army officials, said it is "an extremely graphic and moving look at how we care for severely wounded service members.

"This film will have a strong impact of viewers and may cause anxiety for some soldiers and family members."

He notes that "some may have strong reactions to the medical procedures such as the amputation of a limb."

Kiley said military medical treatment facilities should be ready to help troops and family members affected by the film. He suggested that mental health facilities should extend their treatment hours and reach out to the troops proactively.

Army officials said they fully support the film and note the Army gave the filmmakers access to the hospital. But privately they said it is so graphic that senior leaders do not want to turn Monday's premiere in Washington into a social occasion so many will not be attending, preferring to let the limelight fall on the military personnel.

Officials said they are aware, after screening the film, that some may use it to make an anti-war message.

Peace Day is Sept 22nd Each Year

"The International Day of Peace “is meant to be a day of global cease-fire, when all countries and all people stop all hostilities for the entire day. And it is a day on which people around the world observe a minute of silence at 12 noon local time.

On International Peace Day there are many celebrations and peace marches to honor world peace in cities and countries worldwide.

The International Day of Peace was first established in 1981 by a resolution 36/67 of the United Nations General Assembly to coincide with its opening session every September.
