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.

Senseless (Adam John Shexnayder- Crowley, LA)
These memories that we salvage become part of us. Being stronger and jaded, all at the same time. Where's the sense in that?? Where's the sense in goodbye when all began with hello. One word I sometimes wished I never said. But then I wouldn't be here today to bask in the glory of what's left. There should be a warning on some people. "Beware." One word that I would probably have ignored anyway. Where's the sense in that?? The heart overrides the head and I liked it. For a while. Where's the sense in that?? Now that I'm stronger and jaded at the same time, I've learned. Sense doesn't have a place here. Where's the sense in that??
