Though there are individuals who have made great contributions, we do not believe in "gurus" who have all the answers or are more important than anybody else. People add according to their abilities and resources. One activist may be a doctor who gives great talks; another may be a quiet researcher; and a third may work silently in the kitchen, office, or childcare center. They are each important and deserve respect for what they do. To hold one above the other is contrary to why vegetarianism vegetarianism, theory and practice of eating only fruits and vegetables, thus excluding animal flesh, fish, or fowl and often butter, eggs, and milk.

We may all have different beliefs (and non-beliefs) and callings, but we can all contribute towards a better world. Thank you to those who are working to do so.
In our annual student essay contest (page 26), more and more entrants range from those struggling with the idea of vegetarianism to some being anti-vegetarian. A typical comment is, "Before writing this essay, I used to not understand why people were vegetarian, but now I have a high respect for them." It's great that non-vegetarians spend time thinking about meatless diets while researching their essays. Perhaps this will pave the way in the future for change. Most of us need to hear an idea more than once before we're willing to accept it.
The essays help us keep tabs on current thinking across the country. A recurring theme concerns the prevalence of both vegetarians who criticize others and nonjudgmental non·judg·men·tal

And there's still the conflicting health messages--people believe vegetarianism is healthier and at the same time believe it's not healthy because you don't get enough nutrients. Education is still necessary. While students often quote information from animal groups, the American Dietetic Association The American Dietetic Association (ADA) is the United States' largest organization of food and nutrition professionals, with nearly 65,000 members. Approximately 75 % of ADA's members are registered dietitians and about 4 % are dietetic technicians, registered. position paper is widely used for legitimacy. Therefore, we know it's important for VRG to keep working with professional organizations.
Numerous essay entrants are proud vegetarians, though many feel like they are in the minority. We're pleased that VRG's contest gives them a chance to express their beliefs about vegetarianism. On our application form where we had a space for teacher's name, one student wrote, "I've got a lot of teachers, but no one to tell me about vegetarianism and human morals." We suspect many of these same issues and lack of support system apply to our adult readers. Thank you to our supporters who help us be here for youth and adults.
