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.

Secret Smile (Madison Elizabeth Holland-Lafayette, LA)

I saw a girl yesterday and I was smitten
Because she had that secret kind of smile
That has you convinced she knows something
Not just anything, either
It was the kind of smile that meant
She knew something wonderful
And she was the only one that knew it
I watched her for a bit and realized
That was her normal face, it wasn’t an expression
And then I started to wonder
If maybe she had such a wonderful secret
That it lit her up from the inside
All the time, so that she looked like someone
Who everyone should get to know
Because a girl like that
Must have many wonderful things inside herself
And getting to know her
Would be a privilege and an adventure
Or at least one would assume from her smile.
