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.

Open (Chaney Bennett-Lafayette, LA)
As the light shunned upon my face,
The blessings of my life unveiled upon my brain.
My soul began to ache with love from above,
His mercy ever so abundantly given to me,
Shed upon my twenty years on Earth,
His grace stretched with his loving
Arms of protection.
I thought nothing about the world, but
Rather being closer to Him,
For the things of this world will inevitably
Pass away, like a dream that one can’t
Recall in the morning, you are left
There was no need for me to procrastinate,
No angst or fear, except the fear of Him
In thy soul, He will and has delivered
Me from anguish, and destruction
of my soul.
Do not worry or dwindle your thumbs about
The ending of your self-centered lives, but
I urge you to take a step back and listen to
God. He’s speaking, you should listen,
Open your ears, the trumpets will soon
Sound through the nations, open your ears,
Your hearts, don’t worry about the End,
Just listen to his voice, He is here,
Prepare yourselves for Eternity,
