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.

For Your Grace (Annette Redmond Walters-Lafayette, LA)

"For Your Grace"

I chose not to lead the way
or be the focus of intent
yet here I reside, all on display
for all to see as I repent

I cannot be a perfect spirit
as long as I am bound in sin
I hence feel I’m deemed unfit
for a fight I can’t, alone, win

I pray with passion to see
a promising path of grace
where my people can live free
and our holy father, embrace

Give me strength not to fall
on grievous acts against you
help me hear my lord’s next call
and know your words, alone, are true

I follow where you lead my heart
I give myself to absorb your love
and from evil, set myself apart
I patiently await your guidance from above
