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.

The F Word (Lakari Jaquan Fontenot, Lafayette, LA)

Friendship is a word, I tend to throw around a lot lately
But I haven't really discovered the meaning of friendship
You have your friends who leave you feeling more alone than you've ever felt..
the same friends who said they would never leave
You have your friends who leave you for their boyfriends or girlfriends..
making you that never ending third wheel
You also have the friends who you are always there for and become their confidant..
yet they don't even care about what's going on in your life
The very same friends who call you their bestie
but don't even talk to you much less want to hang out
Friends should never be like that
so then tell me what is a friend
