The Lonesome Trail is an opportunity to convey a story to society of the prodigal son. Living in a world where people so often like McCray want to push human beings into accepting what they believe is right because they have all the money and power to influence public opinion. It will be a great honor to convey a story that shows a message of forgiveness, family, compassion for people of all races. Preacher Brent stands for something that our world has not quite mastered a man that believes that all people should be treated equally no matter where they are from or what their color or creed is. His commitment to the homesteaders to teach them how they can live in a world without violence and allow God to fight their battles is a great topic to show visually.
