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.

from The Book of Joe (Joseph Michael Benoit-Scott, LA)

Let the music move you to tears, 
and help to work through your fears
in the end, my friend
as the Angels descend
your heart they will defend
and if broken, they will mend
while the Voices that you next hear
will be the ones you hold most dear
