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.

Dissolve Into Me (Louis Toliver, Jr - Swartz, La)

I use to be the type of man that avoided conflict
Life has now put me in a spot where I must manage it
But what do I do when my existence is the conflict?
I think I will just go away, disappear, dissolve into me.

I don’t want to go away to harm anyone’s feelings
Life thinks I should put my feelings aside at the moment
I think it is so that I may learn to be right about myself again
If I just go away, I can make the decisions that just affect me.

I’ve come to wish for solitude rather than being social
Life thinks that meditation will pave a fruitful life for us
Then I will reemerge when nature needs me most
Dissolving into me will lead me to a fulfilled destiny
