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.

Unspent Nature (Marlon D Bourque-Lafayette, LA)
As I sit among refreshing breezes,
absorbed in peaceful solitude near.
Sounds of humankind dissonant, yet free,
amidst varying hues of greenery appear.
Lively leaf works, brilliant contrasting bloom,
surrounded by life sustaining nourishment.
Of water and earth, at times beneath an eerie moon,
as though created a lasting monument.
Sunlit shadows cast disproportionately identical replicas,
of majestic natural beauty shone bright.
Cultivated by gifted human hands,
assuming variations through seasons height.
Releasing positive endorphins upon command,thus personalities seemingly improve as warmth of love is at hand
