The Arab American Institute reports Mandy Moore has recorded a 30 second public service radio spot that urges against hatred against Muslims and Arabs.
In the ad, Moore states, “We all know America is going through some rough times, but that’s no reason to hate people who don’t look like you. Discrimination and violence against Arab- and Muslim-Americans is not what this country is all about and will not be tolerated.”
Mandy Moore Loves Her Fans
September 23, 2001 – Mandy thanked fans for sticking up for her on her official site message board and talked about how while she posts on her board which is rare compared to her peers, she understands Britney Spears and *NSYNC don’t have the time she might have. Read on for her comments.
You guys are so sweet! I am glad you enjoy my lil posts (as stupid as some of them are). I think other artists are unable to post because of their schedules (Britney and *NSYNC are superstars and have so many demands for their time). I am fortunate enough to have the time to say hi and chat every now and then (hey-it’s entertainment for me).
Mandy Moore Safe At Home
September 23, 2001 – Mandy again posted about how she’s happy to be home and how she’s adjusting since what happened September 11. Mandy had been depressed but also inspired and proud to be an American. Read on for her comments.
As Dorthy once said, “There’s no place like home” and that is just what i am doing, taking some time with my whole family in Orlando. It is nice to catch up with friends and on sleep. It is just such an odd time I don’t quite know what to say. I’ve been praying and will continue to do so for all of you and your loved ones. I am so proud to be an American….it’s weird how none of us really would have said those words to each other a few weeks ago. Why would we, you know? But geeez, we are truly privileged kids to have grown up in our country. The past couple days (especially in the beginning) I have been kinda depressed. What is truly important?? But I thank you for keeping the momentum of what i love to do alive. Not to over dramatize, but this whole series of events puts everything in perspective. Well, switching subjects before I run….. I hope anyone in Orlando reading this will participate in the LIGHT THE NIGHT Walk for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society today. It’s at Lockhaven Park and i think it starts at 4, weather permitting (it’s pouring at my house right now). Well I am gonna go, but just know I am here for all of you!!
