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.

Aren't You Glad They Made It? (Louis Toliver Jr-Lafayette, LA)

He brushed through his curly, silky hair
He leaned on his inviting, broad shoulder

He remembered where they had been
He remembered all their painful struggles

He reminded him of how far they come
He reminded him of how far down they were

He professed at one time he was his heroin
He professed at one time he was his meth

“Aren’t you glad we made it?” he said to him
“Did you ever lose faith?” he replied to him

“I knew we’d fight to the top,” he smiled
“I knew we’d beat our obstacles,” he grinned

These two men seemed as if they were one
What a great feeling and I’m glad they made it
