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.

Special Contributor: Amber J Lucik

     "Calling Amber J Lucik a new author would be like referring to your landlord as a roommate! Though her presence may not be as obvious as other contributors, Louisiana Words would not be possible without Amber. We pay her our rent, so to speak. Her involvement began when she served as an editor at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, along with Louis Toliver Jr., for a publication called the Southwestern Review: Phoenix Edition. From that project sprang the inspiration for Louisiana Words, a collaborative effort between both Louis and Amber to showcase the rich diversity that Louisiana possesses.
     If helping start Louisiana Words was not enough, Amber is currently in the process of converting Louisiana Words into a book!  Be on the lookout for for updates regarding her progress. Amber, thank you for co-creating an innovative platform for Louisiana writers to express their voices. A large quantity of inspiring literature would have never been produced had you not been inspired to action." - Samuel Jones
