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.

Candy Coated Sheep (Ingrid Kerr~Leesville,LA)

Golden fairies, moonbeams and willow trees
heartfelt yearnings that only He sees
ugly ducklings and beautiful swans
I dream of these things... under scarlet dawns.

I dream of white-winged dragons and fireflies
last year's harvest moon and your sparkling eyes
I dream of cotton candy and waves of the sea
and of your strong arms, gently rocking me.

When I lay down at night to sleep
I count candy coated sheep
Castles made of white, white sand through fields of popcorn, hand in hand we dance in star-bound firelight from early morn.... into the night.

I dream of chocolate covered whispers and of those strawberry kisses of yours
I dream of silver satin lady bugs pumpkin pies, magic wands and stardust hugs.
