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.

7 Billion (Zack DuFour-Lafayette, LA)

There are 7 billion people on the planet

7 billion politicians
and lovers
and poets
and criminals

7 billion tragedies
and comedies

7 billion 
gay and straight and confused

7 billion writers
of the Great American Novel
7 billion painters
of 7 billion masterpieces

7 billion of her 
and 7 billion of him

7 billion drug dealers
and sexual deviants

7 billion mothers
and fathers

7 billion people
who drink Coca Cola
and work 9-5

7 billion 
all dressed with suits and ties
7 billion desperately naked
running mad in the streets

7 billion fighting
and 7 billion laughing

mostly at the same time

7 billion stories you'll never hear
7 billion strangers you pass by daily
