Proud To Be An American

2935 days ago.

blisstree-911 September 11th, 2001 will always be remembered as the day that we lost countless innocent lives and our way of life was forever changed. 2,753 innocent people, representing 115 nations, lost their lives that day. With each passing year, we should remember those lives that were lost as a result of the events that day.

412 emergency workers were among those killed in the attacks. Those included firefighters, paramedics and police officers among others.

2,108 U.S. troops were killed in the ensuing Operation Enduring Freedom along with countless from other nations.

If you only take time one day out of the year to thank those that dedicate their lives to making the United States of America the greatest country in the world, today is the day. Thank those you know that serve in our military. Thank those you know that ride in the police cars, fire trucks and ambulances every day helping to save lives and protect our way of life.

Take time to watch the below videos and think about how proud you are to be an American.

Ryan is a weird dude. He doesn't cook, yet owns a plethora of kitchen gadgets. He rationalized buying a SodaStream while unemployed. He counts Step Up 2: The Streets as one of his favorite movies along with Footloose, Rent, Grease and Paul Blart: Mall Cop. He loves Mizzou but only wants them in the SEC so he can tailgate in Nashville. He owns a ShakeWeight and AbLounger, but still loves him some John Donut and Billie's Fine Foods. You can get more of Ryan at or just check the stool on the far end of the bar at iTap in Soulard.
