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.

Boulders (by James Leland Ludeau III-Lafayette,LA)

we are all like boulders
clinging to side of a mountain

exposed to the elements
hoping to not be rolled down
out of control
into a resting place below
praying that the ground
doesn't give way beneath us
sending us tumbling
we are all part of the mountain
little pieces of its evolution
proof that it had a past life
mineral makeup
time has formed each of us
there is a peace in knowing
that even if we slide off the mountain
and come to rest in the valley
that we are still connected to it
that we can stand on our own
if there is God in these mountains
then we are all part of Him
the sum of us making the whole
awe inspiring mountain
peaks up high
valleys below
tremendous glory
