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.

I Can See Your Potential (For Louis Toliver Jr.) (Samuel Jones- Bastrop, LA)

I can feel what you're going through:
I've had to grow before, many times before.

When they refer to "growing pains," they aren't lying
Are they?

It hurts to grow, but it especially hurts to outgrow:

To outgrow you home,
To outgrow your friends,
To outgrow your beliefs,
And to outgrow yourself.

That last one is especially painful,
But you can't reach your true potential without a little pain.

Those who remain with you are the ones who have grown alongside you,
And you will see that you have lost nothing and gained a ton.

So remember, "No pain. . ."
