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.

"Reality Check about Using Your Heart" (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Reality Check about Using Your Heart

This is meant for good advice
Lead with your head not your heart
I didn’t say don’t show your heart
But not everyone wants to see it
Even if you mean it
So don’t show it to the wrong people
Because they will know how to break it
Don’t take it personal that’s just life
Though, not so fast, the heart is useful
Because using yours will inspire love
But let the potential for those who love
Shine from them and show compassion
As they learn to survive in a hard world
Who you are is not who they are
Most conflicts are caused by the heart
For most who want love
Don’t know how to give it
So don’t expect love back
Be patient and understanding
Guide with your head
See that people love even if they don’t say it
Let those who love you
Show their heart the same time as you
And neither of you will expect
Nor more or less than that
This is how happy relationships are formed
