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.

New Author: Jadyne "Jay" Bell

     "Jadyne, like most creative people, is blessed with multiple talents. I first new him as an orientation leader at our university. There, he exercised team building skills that consistently lead to the stellar execution of a student's first experience at UL Lafayette. Then, I knew him as a graphic design student. Working with the university, he created fresh visual campaigns for UL's longstanding traditions. Now, I know him as a poet. 
     When I first heard Jay Bell's poetry, I could immediately feel a truer depth of who he was. Even though I had already known him on multiple levels, I could see that there was much more to be explored. We are fortunate to have Jay Bell join Louisiana Words. Not only is he the first author to represent New Orleans, but his work is always eye worthy and ear catching." - Samuel Jones
