Greenville, SC Eric’s thoughts on being a vegan: “When I first kicked the meat habit it was more of a healthy choice rather than a statement. Admittedly the further I get into vegetarianism my feelings on the treatment of animals has become a factor. I truly believe someday in the future (hopefully near future) we will be ashamed of some of our actions toward fellow animals.” In addition to his work at TDIV, Eric is a copy editor for an online media company and father of three daughters.

Greenville, SC Daelyn’s thoughts on being a vegan: “In the beginning, much of my reasoning for going vegetarian had to do with becoming healthier. Over the years, I added the 'animal aspect' to my rationale. I really do believe that animals are smarter than we think. I believe they feel. I believe they love. I believe they mourn. As humans we are familiar with our own ways of expressing those emotions. We are obviously not familiar with the way animals think. If we were, we would never ever ever eat them.” Along with her work at TDIV, Daelyn is an editor for a gift-giving website and mother of three daughters.
