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.

The Recovery from Loss (Rachel Leann Brooks-Lafayette, LA)

When people die
People cry.
As the dead float up to a happy place,

Loved ones stay below with a frowning face.

Memories flow,
As we remember and know
How happy the dead were and wanted us to be.

We now begin to finally see
That we shouldn't be trapped inside
The despair over a loved one who's died.

We should smile,
Have fun,
And laugh a while.

We should be happy.
We should be free
From the grasp of unhappy memories.

We should laugh out loud,
Be joyful, and shout
For all of the world to hear
That we can be happy still.
