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 You, Naked Me (Barry Sons-Berwick, 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 presence 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.
Every fear brought to reality in the search for truth; a torment.
To respect the trials in your life that makes you who you are.
To express them onto canvas, the truth of you; the truth of me.
