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.

Life Lessons (Samuel Jones-Bastrop, LA)

When I learned to be open,
I was taken advantage of.
When I learned to be careful,
I missed out.
When I learned to be assertive,
I seemed mean.
And when I learned to speak up,
I came off as rude.
I crawled back then,
But now I walk.
I walk when I love from a distance.
I walk when I make sound judgement.
I walk when I stand my ground.
And I walk when I simply make a good point.
Learning to walk is the hardest part;
Running is comparatively easy.
