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.

Sweet Things in Life (Samuel Jones- Bastrop, LA)
You have ice cream all over your face little boy. Tell me, was it worth it?
Now it's all over your shirt, little boy. I want to know, could you avoid it?
Now your hands are all sticky, little boy? I'm curious, did you enjoy it?
Yes, it was worth it! I had ice cream didn't I?!
A dirty face meant I tasted, A dirty shirt meant it was real, And dirty hands mean I can do it all again.
You had ice cream, didn't you. . ? I'm sorry, I couldn't tell. You threw your spoon and cup away.
