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.

"Totem" (Samuel Jones, Bastrop, LA)

Goes the bones of the forest
Beneath my feet
As I'm guided by my familiar,
The Blue Jay.
Blue for sky,
White for cloud, and
Black for magic--
It second guesses my insecurity,
Punctuates my intuitiveness, and
Encourages the personal power I was once afraid to use.
The Blue Jay,
My totem,
Reminds me that I create my own reality, therefore myself.
It leads by example:
Blue Jays aren't even really blue, they just choose to be.
