I'm really 12 years old (shhhhhhhhh) and finishing 6th grade. I became a vegetarian about a year ago. I had been thinking about it for a while. I just love animals. I am the only vegetarian in my family, but they do support me, especially my mom. She isn't a vegetarian, but she doesn't eat meat when I'm around, which is pretty much all the time. And she never ever eats bacon or pork. So ya, she helps. I have tried getting most of my friends to become vegetarians this year. So far, one of them is a new vegetarian and 3 of my other friends have made accounts on here. I want to become a vegan sometime soon, but I'm kinda young and my dad doesn't want me to. I know it's a lame excuse. But I will!
