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.

Almost There (Louis Toliver- Swartz, LA)

We've been driving on the I-10 for sometime now
It says the next exit isn't for another…
Well we’re not sure when the next exit is
We've been too busy singing old pop songs
Reminiscing about all those good times we had
We know when we do exit, the traveling will end
The journey has been worth it


But to say we even can make sense of where we are coming from

… or where the next exit leads as we cruise with the windows down

To say we knew anything about how I-10 related to life,
Could not be said with any certainty or direction
But regardless of all the vague factors we experienced
We all knew…we were almost there
And we were nervous and excited to be going “there”
