Earthlings trailer

This trailer was enough to make me absolutely ill about the way animals are treated in the pursuit of cheap food.

(For some reason, blogger won't let me embed video, so you'll have to click the link to view the trailer.  If you right click, you can open it in another window.)

I wish that I hadn't already prepared chicken tonight for dinner, because I am not sure that I can eat it.  I'm not sure that I can ever eat meat again.  This may have been the straw that broke the proverbial camel's back.  Although, after seeing this, I would never want to hurt a camel, or any other animal.

I've been struggling with my meat consumption for almost a year now.  I have cut out beef, sausage, sandwich meats and anything else that is highly processed.  I've been choosing non-meat alternatives whenever I can; things like tofu, seitan, tempeh and beans. 

I am going to have to watch the full movie.  You can find it here.  I can't speak to the content of the whole movie, since I haven't seen it yet.  I think that will be on the agenda tomorrow, at some point when Jaden isn't around.  I don't need him to see the fullness of the cruelty that is possible.

Please, watch the trailer.  It is less than 3 minutes long.  Let me know what you think.  Did it affect you?  Did it make you want to change the way you eat?  I would love some dialogue on this subject.
