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.

There You Were (Jason Smith-Lafayette, LA)
I wasn't looking for someone new,
but there you were, out of the blue.
You were so silly, clever, and smart,
you had my heart right from the start.
You were so charming, kind, and sweet,
than you swept me off my feet.
You were so wonderful, so great,
I was sure that I owed it all to fate.
I knew that I would soon be going away,
but I pretended there wasn't such a day.
Saying goodbye to you was torment,
hoping that our time together wasn't just a fleeting moment.
Now distance keeps you from my sight,
but I can still see your face when I close my eyes at night.
On the phone you know just what to say,
the sound of your voice takes my breath away.
I long for your touch, I crave your kiss,
there are so many things that I miss.
