For many, Dragon Ball Z is the essence of your childhood. It is one of the most iconic anime and manga ever made. It has a huge cult following of not just kids, but also teens and adults as well. But never has there been anything close to a Dragon Ball RPG game, which is where this petition comes into play.
Bethesda has proven they can make amazing RPG games with games such as Fallout and Elder Scrolls, so they would be the ideal developer to make a Dragon Ball Z RPG.

It was a simpler time when kids drank Um Bongo, Um Bongo, They drink it in the Congo.
You really, really wanted to be on "Jim'll Fix It".
You were led to believe that in the year 2000 we'd all be living in space.
You could break dance (ok, you thought you could)
You believed that "By the power of Greyskull, you HAD the power!"
Partying "like it's 1999" seemed SO far away.
You recorded songs off the radio with your boom box.
You never questioned why the A-Team were always imprisoned in places that had sufficient tools to build an armoured tank.
It was a better time when kids where kids and the future seemed promising, I want this again for our children, So let's take the first step in fixing broken Briton by Bringing Button Moon Back!
Medication used to treat the most common form of childhood leukemia is in short supply, adding to the largest nationwide shortage of critical lifesaving hospital medications in nearly a decade.
All five pharmaceutical companies that make the injection drug methotrexate, which treats acute lymphoblastic leukemia by slowing the growth of cancer cells, have either slowed and stopped manufacturing of the drug, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The companies have cited high demand or manufacturing delays as reasons for the shortage.
If the shortage continues, physicians and pharmacists fear thousands of children will be left without lifesaving treatment.

Retinoblastoma is a life-threatening eye cancer which develops in children from birth to around six years. The condition is often diagnosed late when the tumour/s have had time to grow extensively within the eye.
In the UK it is treatable but, often, more aggressive treatments are needed - in many cases the treatment used for these large tumours is to remove the whole eye (enucleation) sometimes with follow-up chemotherapy.
Children go on to endure invasive check-ups, initially under general anaesthetic, throughout childhood. Many children face the challenges of living with an artificial eye. The result of late diagnosis for many children is loss or partial loss of vision.
An early diagnosis would lead to a greater choice of treatment options for many children and more aggressive treatments may not be necessary.
The signs of retinoblastoma can be spotted by a parent. If a parent was aware of the significance of these signs they could seek medical help sooner, reducing the chance of the child losing an eye and therefore saving some sight.
There is currently no information provided by the Department of Health for parents in the Birth to Five book or website or on NHS Direct online which alerts parents that there may be a serious problem with their child’s eyes.
Since our campaign started however, every newly-printed Personal Child Health Record (known as the red book), will now warn parents to take action if they see one of the signs of retinoblastoma and the NHS Choices website has also now included information on the condition. With your support we can make sure NHS Direct and Birth to Five also publish this vital information.
There are a number of signs of retinoblastoma - amongst these are;
A white/yellow/orange reflex in the pupil/s, which may be noticed in artificial light or in flash photography.
A change to the colour of the iris in one eye.
A red and swollen eye with or without the presence of infection
An absence of ‘red eye’ in one eye in a photo.
Deterioration in vision.
Unlike other serious childhood illnesses, there may be no other obvious symptoms that the child has cancer. Only awareness of the signs will prompt the parent to seek help.
It is possible for a GP to do a simple, non invasive, 'red reflex' test to identify abnormalities in the retina and make a referral if found. Equally a red reflex test can be used to rule out serious illness if no abnormality is present and concerned parents can be reassured.
We propose simple changes to Department of Health information for parents, which would also alert the parent to other serious eye conditions such as nystagmus, cataract and Coat’s disease as well as retinoblastoma (childhood eye cancer) and give them the confidence to approach their GP with their concerns.
In a survey conducted by the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust in May 2011 with 1,001 parents of children under 6 years old, over 70% said they would like more information to be available. Now we need your support to help make this happen.
Department of Health publications are highly valued by parents and, of those surveyed, 75% of parents said they would look for information about serious eye conditions in the documents/sites mentioned above.

Jacksonville's urban core also known as health zone one,although one of the smallest has the highest level of infant mortally, childhood obesity, asthma, diabetes, drop out, crime, and poor nutrition rates in the city. One of the ways that we would like to combat these problems is through a community garden.
Community gardens serve many purposes and have many benefits some of which include recreation & exercise, therapy, reducing family food budgets while increasing food security, social interaction, beautification, a sense of community, reducing crime and vandalism, constructive family time alternatives, fresh food and improved nutrition, and joy.
The Eastside Community Garden will be one of the pivotal parts of what needs to be done in order to increase the overall health and safety on the eastside along with bring back a sense of community.
The Sydney Southwest Area Health Service is planning to cut crucial services from their Early Childhood Centre Program.
One of the main changes includes the ceasing of the Tuesday morning drop-in service in the Balmain Early Childhood Centre (and no doubt other centres as well). This change will come into effect in mid-December and this decision was implemented without any consultation with the community at large.
The drop-in service has provided regular and accessible help to many parents in an informal setting and has also provided an important supportive forum for many parents to meet other parents.
It is essential for many parents to help care for their young children because babies needs are often immediate and cannot wait until planned appointments which are only available weeks in advance.
Many parents in Balmain are from interstate, overseas or country areas and are separated from their support networks. They rely heavily on formal services for support.
More changes - such as ceasing information forums like 'Introducing Solids' - are planned and something needs to be done to show the SSWAHS that these services are vital for the health and well being of our babies and parents and to ensure that no more services are taken away.
Please help us protect the mental and physical health of our babies and parents in Balmain and other suburbs within the Sydney South West Area and sign this petition to have our Early Childhood Services re-instated and to ensure that future changes to the Early Childhood Program be thoroughly debated by the community.
Infancy and early childhood development set the stage for a child's future ability to interact socially and achieve academically, and extensive research on the human brain shows the from birth to age 5 children rapidly develop the lanuage and cognitive capabilities and emotional, social, regulartory and moral capacities upon which child development proceeds.To this end, the critical dimensions must be nurtured in early,high quality, active learning pre-kindergarten programs for all FLorida four-year-old children to provide both short and long-term benefits, including later school success.
