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.

Forever Friend (Kisha Courville Kana-Lafayette, LA)

you belong to a guitar
and i to a pen
all that we are
souls we can mend

walk on water for me
beneath your feet
feel the purest sea
that's where we'll meet

with a whisper
i'll remember
who you are
and you'll need no answer

disguised as a queen or a peasant
through all of our lives
we were present
to take away the knives

used to cut and destroy
our destinies and tasks
 we must now employ
off come the masks

no longer afraid of the dark
now is the time
we must embark
memories sublime

without a sound
there was no word
i felt your presence all around
it was your spirit i heard

to see me
is to feel
what is meant to be
the power to heal
