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.

What Have I Done to You? (Jason M. Smith-Lafayette, LA)
How do I make up what has been done,
I have hurt your mother and her son.
Vengeance has broke our hearts,
I should have held onto our love from the start.
I have no way to make this up to you,
Maybe there is still love that will act like glue.
The way I have acted is no excuses,
You seem to be hurt and over the abuse.
To make this up I would do what ever I can do,
Just to prove that I still love you.
Please do not leave me to this fate,
I will be here because you are worth the wait.
You need your space to sort your thoughts,
I will understand if you tell me to get lost.
All I know is there is pain where there was love,
Is it too late for us or has it flown away on the wings of a dove?
