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.

Justified (Adam Schexnayder-Crowley, LA)
"I love you."
As a single tear rolled down her face, she walked away into the bright, orange horizon. It was as if she breathed for the first time. The wind bowed to her feet. She had never felt so alive and empowered. The point of no return had been crossed, but she was left with no choice. She felt the last bruise on her abs vanish as she walked away.
Out of nowhere, the ground beckoned to feel her embrace. The guilt of her action weighed her down. Pushed to the edge, she knew it to be the only choice. Dust pillowed into the air, rising. In the distance, the low hum of the sirens filled her ears. Motionless and relieved, she captured this moment. No amount of remorse could summon her back to that dark place. She knew what would be asked of her and she welcomed the question with open arms.
