written by Karl Tunberg, from the novel by General Lew Wallace

Messala: What do you think you see? The smashed body of a wretched animal! Is enough of a man still left here for you to hate? Let me help you......You think they're dead. Your mother and sister. Dead. And the race over. It isn't over Judah. They're not dead. Look for them in the Valley of the Lepers, if you can recognize them. It goes on. It goes on Judah. The race, the race is not over.
