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.

A Lesson in Words (Rachel Leann Brooks-Lafayette, LA)

Words
Words on a page
Words
Spoken aloud
Words that carry on the history
Of those no longer around

History
Written on a page
History
Spoken aloud
History that carries on the memory
Of those no longer around

Stories
Stories written down
Stories
Growing in value through time
Stories telling of people
Of those no longer around

People
Who once lived a life
People
Whose stories in which value has been found
Lessons from the lives of those who have lived;
Of those no longer around


Lessons
Lessons told with words
Lessons
Warning of recurrence and dangers around
Lessons within the stories of the history of people;
Of those no longer around
