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.

Shade (Ted A. Richard-Church Point, LA)

Some people don't realize that the "shade" they are presenting
is more a reflection of their own insecurities,
rather than an insult to the one standing under the tree!!!
Most leaves fall in the autumn ...
No shade is left!!

And some of these “shade” people will see this or hear this
Then they like it and share it;
but never realize that the tree they’re hiding under
is about to fall.
And when that happens,
I'll be doing just fine in my own sunlight.
