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.

Funny Books (Lakari Jaquan Fontenot- Lafayette, LA)

20 pages filled with characters who won't judge me for being anything but me 

In those pages lie my best friends in the entire world 

These same pages will always be there when I need them 

Those pages hold my deepest darkest secrets 

The same pages I cried into a million times 

Those pages that hold men and women I admire and will forever look up too 

The same pages that make me happy above anything else 

People laugh and make fun of these pages 

But at the end of the day, these pages bring me too much joy in my life
