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.

Transition Ambition (Cara Anne Overgaard- Lafayette, LA)

I collided with the sky 
I am suffocating in a cloud of bliss 
To return is to die 
To find purchase is fear 

Yet I must rise above
 I must see the father 
Mother moon to soothe 

Thank you mother for your blessings 
Forgive me 
Father grant me my old strength 
Forgive me

So let it be 

A prayer from a modern white two-spirit
