MTV Comes Together: Artists And Viewers Speak
Tori was featured briefly during this show, which has several celebrities and musicians give their thoughts about the terrible events of September 11, 2001. This first was broadcast on MTV in the U.S. on Saturday, September 22, 2001 at 3 separate times and MTV plans to show it again many times in the near future. Look below for details on what Tori said and screen shots.
UPDATE: What MTV broadcast on the show "MTV Comes Together: Artists And Viewers Speak" was only a part of the what Tori said. Toriphiles are reporting that MTV and MTV2 are showing a longer version of Tori's clip at various times. Here is the full Tori quote. Thanks to Tracy Rachel Streimish for sending it to me.
"In many ways, I think that this country is still rather young. And also the youth of the country. But you know, youth have such a gift because they have resiliance and they have this magic way of making us all want to get up in the morning and see what tomorrow will bring. It's important now that we ask questions. I really think that the great wisdom isn't found in the answer, but in the question. So in colleges don't you think it's really important now that there's a forum? That we're talking about all sides of what happened on Septmeber 11th and what led up to it. We need to do some research. We need to think about: why is the world where it is? It's so deep rooted, if we really start looking. And we might not like what we find, but I think we have to. We have to ask the questions."
Here is a shortened version of the quote that was actually broadcast on "MTV Comes Together: Artists And Viewers Speak":

"Don't you think it's really important now that there's a forum, that we're talking about all sides of what happened September 11 and what led up to it? We need to do some research; we need to think about, Why is the world where it is? It's so deep-rooted, if we really start looking, and we might not like what we find. But I think we have to, we have to ask the questions."
I must say I am personally thrilled to see such an intelligent and non-reactionary quote from Tori about these terrible events. This video clip of Tori talking was also shown on MTV2 in the U.S. A big thank you goes out to Katherine Welch, shawn.the.little.masochist... and Casey for also emailing me about this!
According to MTV.com, here are the times when you can see this show again (with the shorter quote):
Sun, Sept 23 at 7:00 AM ET
There will likely be other times as well. Keep an eye on MTV.com to see when it may come on again after this.
A huge thank you to Jason (FlynDchmn) who sent me these screen shots!
