The Louisiana Social Pledge
We pledge our allegiance to Louisiana. We will embrace what makes us and our state unique. Louisiana will be recognized as a leader and innovator of the New South. Many great leaders of the future will come from this state. And we will show both the media and politicians that we are smarter than them. We will no longer have our resources exhausted and our people used and left behind. We will work hard and play hard. We will protect each other. We will support each other. We pledge that we will do whatever we can to get these things in motion right now. We will no longer wait for a path to be cleared for us. We will clear the path ourselves. And we ain’t giving up easily. We will socialize in the real world just as well as we do on the internet…in hopes to organize ourselves effectively.

A Distant Dream (Taylor Coen-Lafayette, LA)
Ticks and tocks of clocks:
time passes through itself
melting away into the surface.
A picture, an image, a dip into surrealism.
Unfamiliar grounds express chaos.
A fight between night and day:
religious beliefs mold into the earth.
The web of life comes alive:
a dome of peace.
Clouds form the background:
an hourglass of time.
as light shines through it.
A pathway is shown to this beautiful land.
Sailing across the vast ocean: an adventure.
Running towards the shadows: stupidity.
An oasis of time consecrates the state of mind.
