Rachel Silverman

1996 Essay Contest Winner

Rachel Silverman won The Vegetarian Resource Group's 1996 Essay Contest in the age 8 and under category.


I am Rachel Silverman. I became a vegetarian because I love animals. I was six years old. I saw on TV people killing animals. I didn't like it. I went to Junior's Restaurant with my dad. We had bacon and eggs. I asked my dad what it was. He said pork. I asked what pork was. He said pig. I said Eew! I said I'm going to be a vegetarian starting now. And I've been one ever since.

I also read a book called All Cows Are Vegetarians. It told you about if one person a year is a vegetarian, it saves the rain forest. It also taught about what people are doing to this planet Earth. I was nearly in tears. It takes a lot to make me cry. That helped me to stay a vegetarian.
