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.

Mother's Day Poem (Annette Redmond Walters-Lafayette, LA)

Thank you for making all my birthdays bright
Celebrating all my years

Thank you for getting up late at night
And dispelling all my fears

Thank you for the values you taught me
Being patient as I learned

Thank you for filling me with glee
At every milestone I turned

Thank you for teaching me to be a woman
Others could look up to

Thank you for doing everything under the sun
That you could possibly do

Thank you for showing me the kind of mother
My son would need me to be
