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.

It's Not Easy Being T (Madisyn Barbosa- Lafayette, LA)


its not that easy being T,spending each day just trying to be me,when i thought it could be nicer,being dead,or mellow or bold, or something like that,its not that easy being T,just wanting to blend in like all the ordinary things,just wishing that people would pass me over, and not stand out just because im a girl,born a guy,But T is a wonderful thing,and T can be cool and lovely-like,and T can be beautiful with emotion,and T can be gorgeous like a fountain,and happy as can be,when T is all there is to be,and T can make you wonder,but why wonder,why wonder,Im T,and ill be just fine,and its beautiful,and im glad its what i am,and happy...
