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.

Joy - (Madison Elizabeth Holland-Lafayette, LA)

It took awhile
To push past the bad
The negativity and hurt

But once it happened
It was as if a flower bloomed
Inside of me
And my heart grew larger
Yet smaller
Larger to hold more love
More happiness and joy
Smaller to expel the dampening effects
Of the annoyances
The heartbreaks and the failures
Less things to drag me down
Allowing me to love with all of me.
