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.

Exit (Rachel Jackson- Lafayette, LA)

Float away gently.
Let your feet lift up off the pebbles.

Recall those younger pastimes
Of sticking branches in the mud.

Accept the older pastimes.
The worry. The longing. The striving.

Indulge yourself for a moment,
But then leave it all behind.

For suffering is weighty,
And you can't let your heels sink in.

Entering this Earth should be like leaving it.
