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.

Creativity (Louis Toliver Jr- Swartz, LA)

     I remember the day I found GOD when I had fallen backward into yesterday. She dusted me off and placed my feet on solid ground. She then told me that I needed to unshackle those chains of fictional guilt and worry. I couldn't figure out for the life of me what GOD was but she placed a pencil down at a table in the present and told me to “Sit down and write.” And so I began. The pen changed into a key and it so happened to be the right-sized key to unlock the chains I carried. When I looked up to see where GOD was, she had left me in the present, alone. So, I thought. Then, I looked down to the notepad I was writing on and I was surprised that I had no idea I had written the word “future” on it. It was clear that the only way I could find GOD again was to keep writing with the pen she gave me.
