Martin Luther King, Jr once said that, “the ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” This quote stands true to the the novel, “Running the Rift.” as the themes deal with the challenges that Jean Patrick and Rwanda face during the controversy of the genocide.
