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.

Resurrected (James Leland Ludeau III-Lafayette, LA)
You got me falling back Like I'm baptized Deeply into your love Resurrected No longer in the dark My soul is filled with Light You guide me You hide me From the destruction that I almost surely bestowed upon myself You make me do better You make me know better Higher heights Better nights Your love is my drug It's like a symphony for my soul Each insecurity was like a nail Crucifying me to a cross I couldn't get off of But you wrapped me in your arms And saved me from harm Resurrected a part of me The real me Set me free Now I once again dance in the sun That battle's been won You are to me a savior Who saved me from myself My behavior had me chained Like a slave to my ego No longer imprisoned by my own Negative thoughts I feel freer to share And my light shines My life's divine That cross is torn down And the fire it created Warmed my frigid heart Never going back there again In love with the love I feel from you And aware of the beauty I possess Not worried about the march of time Because I'm grateful for each moment My breath pregnant with insight
