The pair are currently in New York on the anniversary of the attacks, and have vowed to “never forget” the day.
In a post on her Myspace.com blog, Lohan, who grew up in Long Island, writes, “I would like to remind everybody to take a moment today for those lost in the tragedy that occurred on 9/11/01.”
Ronson adds, “Waking up in NYC this morning, seven years later… feels like just yesterday this city and our worlds were turned upside down… Never in my lifetime had I ever believed that I would see such horror–the kind that you see in documentaries set in far off places and read about in text books.
“Never in my life had I ever thought that I would wake up and fall asleep afraid, watching things on television that felt like a film, walking through a city that felt like a war zone.
“There were army vehicles on Houston Street, barricades dividing neighborhoods and lines around the block of people waiting to donate blood–set in front of a backdrop of smoke, filling a space where two of the largest buildings once stood.
“Two buildings that shaped one of the most famous skylines in this country, or in the world… seven years later, and I will never forget.
“I don’t really know what to say. To all those we lost, we will never forget, and never take for granted, the sacrifices that you made.”
