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.

Naked Us (Barry Sons-Berwick, LA & Louis Toliver Jr- Swartz, LA)
To reach into that part of you; Can my hand find the mystery, the spark the piercing fire to your eyes?
The majesty of your presents sits like a king brought to canvas. Will my hand have the grace to bring it to life?
Every stroke a lesson in control. Every line left alone, a gift.
The subject speaks before us
The artist strokes respectively
Every fear brought to reality in the search for truth. A torment.
Thoughts, life, reality, a person
Sensual, invoking, thoughtful, unity
To respect the trials in your life that makes you who you are.
The artist and subject together, forever
To create a new destiny for enlightenment
To express them onto canvas, the truth of you; the truth of me.
