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.

Snow on the Palmetto (Barry Sons-Berwick, LA)

The sign had to be specific. 
My life was out of control.

My faith had run so shallow 
Doubt was all that flowed.

Snow in the Gulf of Mexico, 
Is all that I’d except to 
Show me that You do have 
A handle on all this mess.

The answer, came in Your time 
One Christmas I went home; 
There was snow on the palmetto 
I knew we weren’t alone.
