Firoozeh Dumas (IH 1986-87), the book's editor and author of Funny in Farsai: Growing Up Iranian in America, describes the authors: "They are ten individuals, each with a story, each with a vision of hope. They have chosen to share their stories in hopes that we can all somehow learn from one another."

In one of the essays, an anonymous Nigerian doctor describes a terrifying attack that left his five companions dead:
I learned that religious intolerance is dangerous and we cannot afford it…. I learned that humans possess both good and bad ideals, and that a terrible fight goes on inside everyone – a fight between two wolves. One is evil and represents hate, anger, arrogance, criticism and intolerance. The other is good and represents peace making, love, tolerance, understanding, humility, empathy and compassion. Which wolf wins is the one you feed.

Aurelio Perez, a former I-House resident, writes: September 11th didn't make me feel like an American, it made me feel like a person, not a citizen of the United States, but a member of humanity. Yet for all this consequent solidarity that many of us felt, September 11th helped me to acknowledge the multiplicity of racial, religious, national, cultural heritages that define us, heritages often masqueraded and reduced through the negative rhetoric of difference. I became aware of many of the challenges in the world today, challenges we must face not in spite of but precisely because of their difficulty.

Perez goes on to describe his experiences at I-House: Life is not perfect at International House; we all come here with our prejudices and biases. To leave them behind would be impossible. Still, the challenges we encounter and collectively surmount serve as a testament to both the necessity of cultural exchange and the progress that is possible in the world.
