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.

Why this? (Elizabeth Jenkins-New Orleans-LA)

It seems to me so strange this day
To sit right here and think this woe
My love she packs her bags to leave
Coming soon she'll be with me
Yet she sobs and feels such wretched pain
I see her cry from so far away
Yet nothing do I have nor do but wait
Come to me my precious love
Our pain is not for joyous reunion near
But for time astill must be lost
Preparing for the final trek
Before I hold her near to me
I'll hold her close and hold her hard
At last together so we'll be
Ne'er to render apart our hearts
Forever be united one - forever be united one
So that is why I cry this day
Though sweet reunion anears we two
I think upon that joyous time
When we - 
this time forever - 
join again!
